The science delusion is the belief that science already understands the nature of reality. The fundamental questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled in. Read more:

Today I had a look at Rupert Sheldrake’s book "The Science Delusion – Freeing the spirit of enquiry" and what I found printed on the back cover of that book seemed to me to be a nice description of science as we find it today.

On this website there exist two webpages that also deal with Rupert Sheldrake. Have a look at them:
2012 Feb 06 – Evolution
2012 Apr 12 – How pigeons navigate

On the first webpage his book is even mentioned. It is a new book. It came out this year.

Here now the text on the back cover of the book "The Science Delusion:"

The science delusion is the belief that science already
understands the nature of reality. The fundamental
questions are answered, leaving only the details to be
filled in. In this book, Dr Rupert Sheldrake, one of the
world’s most innovative scientists, shows that science is
being constricted by assumptions that have hardened
into dogmas. The ‘scientific worldview’ has become
a belief system. All reality is material or physical. The
world is a machine, made up of dead matter. Nature is
purposeless. Consciousness is nothing but the physical
activity of the brain. Free will is an illusion. God exists
only as an idea in human minds, imprisoned within
our skulls.

Sheldrake examines these dogmas scientifically, and
shows persuasively that science would be better off
without them: freer, more interesting, and more fun.
