Rupert Sheldrake in New Cross

I've mentioned before about interesting events at Goldsmiths in New Cross, often featuring internationally-known speakers, free of charge and open to anybody who wants to turn up. Goldsmiths publish a regular calendar of events, and it's worth checking this out.

Next week, on the Tuesday 20th January, Rupert Sheldrake is giving a lecture on Morphic Resonance, Collective Memory and the Habits of Nature. It takes place in the Richard Hoggart Building from 6 pm to 7:30 pm (details here). Sheldrake is a controversial scientist often quoted by those inclined to parapsychology and mysticism - I've linked to his site above, so for the sake of balance here's a sceptical view of one of his claims. Whatever your views, this looks like an interesting talk.
