New interview with Rupert Sheldrake

If you've read The New Inquisition by Robert Anton Wilson, you know that there is quite a bit of ink about Rupert Sheldrake and his theories. 

Infinite Loops -- the podcast of investor, philanthropist and RAW fan  Jim O’Shaughnessy -- has a new episode up, an interview of Rupert Sheldrake. Available at the link and you can also download a transcript.

Early in the interview, after a discussion about Sir John Maddox and his denunciations of Sheldrake:

Jim O’Shaughnessy: There's a wonderful book, I don't know if you've read it, by Robert Anton Wilson, called The New Inquisition: Irrational Rationalism and the Citadel of Science.

Rupert Sheldrake: Yes, I have read it. Yes. I mean it is a very good account of this thing. I mean, it is not just me and it's not just Maddox. It's a much bigger issue really as Wilson points out.

Hat tip: Mike Gathers.
