He is known for having proposed a non-standard account of morphogenesis and for his research into parapsychology. His books and papers stem from his theory of morphic resonance, and cover topics such as animal and plant development and behaviour, memory, telepathy, perception and cognition in general.

Sheldrake’s ideas have often met with a hostile reception from some scientists, including accusations that he is engaged in pseudoscience. It’s not rigidly determined in the old sense. It’s not rigidly predictable. When you call up a word processing program on your computer, you don’t want it to be different every time you call it up. You want it to stay the same.

The dogs who know when their masters for coming home, and the sense of being stared at. The weight of evi dence suggests they can. Each kind of thing has a collective memory. So, take a squirrel living in New York now. That squirrel is being influenced by all past squirrels.

He attended Worksop College, an Anglican boarding school, and specialized in science. His father was an amateur naturalist and microscopist who encouraged his son’s interest in plants and animals. He specialized in biochemistry, graduated with double-first-class honours, and won the University Botany Prize.

He was awarded a Frank Knox fellowship to study philosophy and history at Harvard University, at around the time Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions shdldrake published, which he writes informed his view on the extent to which the mechanistic theory of life is just a paradigm.

He returned to Cambridge, where he obtained his Ph.


As a biochemist, Sheldrake researched the role of auxin, a plant hormone, in the differentiation of a plant’s vascular system. He ended this line of study when he concluded, “The system is circular, it does apsado explain how [differentiation is] established to start with. After nine years of intensive study, it became clear to me that biochemistry would not solve the problem of why things have the basic shape they do.

Where Bergson denied that personal memories and habits are stored in brain tissue, Sheldrake goes a step further by arguing that bodily forms and instincts, while expressed through genes, do not have their primary origin in them. Instead, his hypothesis states, the organism develops under the influence of previous similar urpert, by a mechanism he has dubbed morphic resonance. In SeptemberSheldrake received the Perrott-Warrick Scholarship for psychical research and parapsychology, which is administered by Trinity College, Cambridge.


As a result, he is the current Director of the Perrot-Warrick Project. He was presenting as part of the tenth annual International Conference on Science and Consciousness. Sheldrake has since recovered. The assailant, Japanese born laborer Kazuki Hirano, allegedly stabbed Sheldrake because he believed that Sheldrake was using mind control techniques on him.

He had followed Sheldrake to New Mexico from England to purportedly ask him how to block mental telepathy when he stabbed him. Sheldrake fears that if he is released and extradited to Japan, he will continue to stalk him. Sheldrake has a Methodist background but after a spell as an atheist found himself being drawn back to Christianity when in India, and is now an Anglican.

Sheldrake has made appearances sheldrakd popular media, both on radio and on presenci. He was the subject of a one of a six-part documentary series called “Heretic”, broadcast on BBC 2 in Sheldrake has entered into a scientific wager with fellow biologist Lewis Wolpert on the rupeert of DNA in the developing organism. Wolpert bet Sheldrake shelrdake case of fine port” that by the First of May”given the genome of a fertilised egg of an animal or plant, we will be able to predict in at least one case all the details of the organism that develops from it, including any abnormalities.

If the outcome is not obvious, the British Royal Society will be asked to determine the winner. He proposes that there is a field within and around a morphic unit which organizes its characteristic structure and pattern of activity.

According to this concept, the morphic field underlies the formation and behaviour of holons and morphic units, and can be set up by the repetition of similar acts or thoughts. The hypothesis is that a particular form belonging to a certain group which has already established its collective morphic field, will tune into that morphic field.

The particular form will read the collective information through the process of morphic resonance, using it to guide ruprt own development. This development of the particular form will then provide, again through morphic resonance, a feedback to the morphic field of that group, thus strengthening it with its own experience resulting in new information being added i. Sheldrake regards the morphic fields as a universal database for both organic living and abstract mental forms.

That a mode of transmission of shared informational patterns and archetypes might exist did gain some tacit acceptance, when it was proposed as the theory of collective unconscious by renowned psychiatrist Carl Jung. According to Sheldrake, the theory of morphic fields might provide an explanation for Jung’s concept as well. Also, he agrees that the concept of Akashic Records, term from Vedas representing the “library” of al the experiences and memories of human minds souls through their physical lifetime, can be related to morphic fields, since one’s past an Akashic Record is a mental form, consisting of thoughts as simpler mental forms all processed by the same brainand a shelldrake of similar or related mental forms also have their associated collective morphic field.


Sheldrake’s concept has little support in the mainstream scientific community. Members of the scientific community consider Sheldrake’s concept to be currently unfalsifiable and therefore outside of lla scope of scientific experiment. The concept of the Morphic field is believed by many to fall into the realm of pseudoscience. Morphic resonance Essential to Sheldrake’s model is the hypothesis of morphic resonance. This is a feedback mechanism between the field and the corresponding forms of morphic units.

The greater the degree of similarity, the greater the resonance, leading to habituation or persistence of particular forms. So, the existence of a morphic field makes the existence of a new similar form easier.

Sheldrake proposes that the process of morphic resonance leads to stable morphic predencia, which are significantly easier to tune into. He suggests that this is the means by which simpler organic forms synergetically self-organize into more complex ones, and that this model allows a different explanation for the process of evolution itself, as an addition to Darwin’s evolutionary processes of selection and variation.

Morphogenetic field For the mainstream developmental biology concept, see Morphogenetic field.

Morphogenetic fields are defined by Sheldrake as the subset of morphic fields which influence, and are influenced by living things. The term [morphic fields] is more general tupert its meaning than morphogenetic fields, and includes other kinds fel organizing fields in addition to those of morphogenesis; the organizing fields of animal and human behaviour, of social and cultural systems, and of mental activity can all be regarded as morphic fields which contain an inherent memory.
