His is a rare voice and a needed one in an apocalyptic time like ours that requires both grounding and expansion of human consciousness amid the turmoil that confronts us. The practices he espouses do not take us out of the world but put us back in.
Certainly we need to accept the limitations of much current dogma and keep our minds open as we reasonably can. Sheldrake may help us do so through this well-written, challenging and always interesting book.
Rupert Sheldrake does science, humanity and the world at large a considerable favour.
nothing is more important in our melancholy era than a renewed vision of hope and promise that can see us through. The messages in Rupert Sheldrake's Ways To Go Beyond are wonderfully clear and inspiring... I regard this as one of the most important books of our generation.
Sheldrake is a very engaging writer.
An affable erudite manual to show how life need not be boring and seem meaningless.
Sheldrake will be seen as a prophet.
Praise for Rupert Sheldrake
Read the book just because it's funny, wise, full of whimsical weirdness, and drawn from a massive hinterland of knowledge and reflection. Read it because it'll give you lots of strange stories to tell, and because it'll make you ontologically queasy, make you wonder what you are and make you easier to live with.
