Description

About The Rebirth of Nature

Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world's preeminent biologists, has revolutionized scientific thinking with his vision of a living, developing universe--one with its own inherent memory. In The Rebirth of Nature, Sheldrake urges us to move beyond the centuries-old mechanistic view of nature, explaining why we can no longer regard the world as inanimate and purposeless. Sheldrake shows how recent developments in science itself have brought us to the threshold of a new synthesis in which traditional wisdom, intuitive experience, and scientific insight can be mutually enriching.

Book Praise

"This frontal assault on conventional science embodies a radical rethinking of humanity's place in the scheme of things."
Publishers Weekly

The Rebirth of Nature is a breakthrough book, beautifully written and spiritually oriented. It shows our intimate relationship with the universe--that we are a part of a breathing, living, thinking cosmos and that intelligence is a pervasive reality inseparably one with nature. This book will take everyone who reads it to new heights of understanding.”
Deepak Chopra, M.D., author of Ageless Body, Timeless Mind

"A beautifully written, deeply felt, and sinuously argued challenge to many habits of thought."
