Ben Kadel Posted over 2 years ago Rupert Sheldrake's TEDx talk: Detailing the issues It's interesting to me that Torbjorn doesn't address the actual content of the talk so much as focus on character assassinations of Sheldrake (questioning his credentials, using other people's character judgements, etc.) and yet claims that Sheldrake is engaging in character assassination of science. What makes this even more bizarre is that "science" as a process has no character to be assassinated. The only way one could assassinate the character of science is if it was thought of as an entity, as Science with a capital S, which is exactly the point that Sheldrake is making. Torbjorn's defensive reaction proves Sheldrake's point.
