9780553071054: The Rebirth of Nature

Science has traditionally taught us that nature is inanimate and machine-like - a storehouse of resources to be exploited for human gain. Remarkably, it is through science that our entire attitude is being revolutionized. In this book, Rupert Sheldrake traces the mythological and historical roots of our present crisis, explaining how our ancestors took it for granted that the world was "alive" and how something of this attitude prevails today in the romantic desire to "return to nature" at weekends and on holidays. But it is the "mechanistic" view of nature which has dominated for the past few hundred years, bringing us to the brink of ecological disaster. Now, however, the new science has destroyed man's faith in the total predictability of "mechanical" nature, has led to the recognition of the chaos and spontaneity of nature, and to the growing realization that our Earth is a developing organism whose laws may not have been fixed when the universe was born, but may be more like habits, constantly changing, evolving and growing. In fact nature may have an inherent memory.

From the Back Cover:

NEW SCIENCE / ECOLOGY

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

“This frontal assault on conventional science embodies a radical rethinking of humanity’s place in the scheme of things.”
--Publishers Weekly

“A beautifully written, deeply felt, and sinuously argued challenge to many habits of thought.”
--Booklist

RUPERT SHELDRAKE, one of the world’s foremost biologists, has revolutionized scientific thinking with his vision of living, developing universe with it’s own inherent memory. In The Rebirth of Nature Sheldrake urges us to move beyond the centuries-old mechanistic view of nature, explaining in lucid terms why we can no longer regard the world as inanimate and purposeless. Through an astute critique of the dominant scientific paradigm, 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.
