Scientist Rupert Sheldrake currently has a series running in the
Daily Mail - here's the first instalment from a couple of days
ago - I believe there's another today.

And here's a News Release from Rupert Sheldrake Online:

London January 3rd, 2012

My new book The Science Delusion: Freeing the Spirit of Enquiry
is due to be published on Thursday January 5 in the UK. In the
US it is to be published by Random House in May 2012 under the
title Science Set Free: Dispelling Dogma. In the meantime,
people in the US, Canada and elsewhere can buy the UK edition
online from the Book Depository, with free airmail delivery:

The science delusion is the belief that science already
understands the nature of reality, in principle. The fundamental
questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled
in. The impressive achievements of science seem to support this
confident attitude. But recent research has revealed unexpected
problems at the heart of physics, cosmology, biology, medicine
and psychology. In The Science Delusion, I show how the sciences
are being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into
dogmas. In the sceptical spirit of scientific enquiry, I turn
the ten fundamental dogmas of science into questions, opening up
startling new possibilities.

BBC Radio 3 broadcast a half-hour conversation between me and
Joan Bakewell on the subject of belief on Monday, January 2,
which is available online in the UK on the BBC web site here:

I will be giving a series of lectures on The Science Delusion in
London in January and February, starting with a lecture and
reception to launch the book on January 17 at Kings College,
London University, sponsored by the Scientific and Medical
Network. Details of these events are on the schedule on my web
site here:

I will also be speaking in Dublin on January 26 at an event
sponsored by The Irish Times.

I am taking part in a new media initiative called Expert TV,
which is being organized by a company called Meovi. This will be
launched in January. It involves no advertisements, but is an
online subscription service, with a small monthly fee.
Subscribers will have access to my short videotaped answers to
dozens of frequently-asked questions and will also be able to
ask new questions, which I will be answering in a continual
series of new recordings. This service will also include the
live streaming of some of my lectures, seminars and dialogues,
and live question and answer sessions.

All the material on my web site will continue to be available
free of charge.

The latest trialogue with Terence McKenna and Ralph Abraham to
go online is on "Morphic Fields and Telepathy Within Family
Groups", and is available here:
