Evolution, Biology and Spirituality with Rupert Sheldrake (Part 2)

In Part 2, Ilia, Robert and Rupert discuss evolution, faith and Rupert’s Anglican spirituality. They ask how religion and science can work together in a more integrated framework, and Rupert has the last word on how our quest for digital immortality is coming full circle.


“I’d see the evolutionary processes as interplay between two fundamental principles, namely habits and creativity.”

Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author of more than 90 scientific papers and nine books, and the co-author of six books. His books have been published in 28 languages. He was among the top 100 Global Thought Leaders for 2013, as ranked by the Duttweiler Institute, Zurich, Switzerland’s leading think tank. For ten years running he has been recognized as one of the “most spiritually influential living people in the world” by Watkins Mind Body Spirit magazine. His work has been featured in many magazines, newspapers and broadcast media, including New Scientist, The Guardian, Discover magazine, The Spectator, The Washington Post, Die Zeit and on BBC radio and television.
