In the Presence of the Past

Rupert Sheldrake is best known for his controversial theory of "formative causation" which implies a non-mechanistic universe, governed by laws which themselves are subject to change. Born in Newark-on-Trent, England, Rupert studied natural sciences at Cambridge and philosophy at Harvard, where he was a Frank Knox Fellow. He took a Ph.D in biochemistry at Cambridge in 1967, and in the same year became a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge. He was Director of Studies in biochemistry and cell biology there until 1973.
