While in India, he became a close associate of the late Father Bede Griffiths – an internationally renowned Dominican monk, mystic and spokesperson for interspiritual dialogue between religions.
Dr. Sheldrake has written extensively on his morphogenic theory since the publication of his first major book A New Science in Life in 1981 . His most recent book is “Science Set Free: Ten Paths to New Discovery” which is a thorough critique of the flaws in the dominant mechanistic scientific establishments and offers alternative evidence to give credence for a new approach in scientific understanding.
