Angels: Where Science Fears to Tread | [Rupert Sheldrake, Matthew Fox]

Angels: Where Science Fears to Tread

Rupert Sheldrake and Matthew Fox will transform how you think about the most popular of all spiritual beings. Study of the Christian mystics led Fox and Sheldrake to the most startling part of their research, which was the discovery that "Aquinas' discussion on angels practically parallels today's discussion upon physics". They explore the idea that the universe is a living organism, and they raise the possibility that angels play a role in the governing of the universe itself.

Publisher's Summary

This stimulating discussion with Rupert Sheldrake and Matthew Fox, two visionary pioneers of modern science and theology, will transform how you think about the most popular of all spiritual beings. Study of the Christian mystics led Fox and Sheldrake to the most startling part of their research, which was the discovery that "Aquinas' discussion on angels practically parallels today's discussion upon physics". Fox and Sheldrake explore the new cosmology that the universe is a living, developing organism, and they raise the intriguing possibility that angels play a role in the actual governing of the universe itself. Fox and Sheldrake are co-authors of The Physics of Angels, Exploring the Realm where Science and Spirit Meet (HarperSanFrancisco 1996). Fox is a theologian, the founder of the University of Creation Spirituality and author of seventeen books, including Confessions, the Making of a Postdenominational Priest (HarperSanFrancisco 1996). Sheldrake is a biologist and author of numerous books, including Seven Experiments that Could Change The World (Riverhead Books 1995).

Topics explored in this dialogue include: why angels are so popular today; scientific theories of what angels really are; good, bad and fallen angels; how modern physics parallels and transforms our conception of angels; how the split between science and spirit came about and how the two are being reconnected; the importance of wonder and awe in scientific study; the reawakening of life in the universe; the quest for the animate; the need for darkness as well as light; how 'The Enlightenment' has left us in the dark; and how our ego narrows and colors our discoveries and visions.
