Professor Lewis Wolpert and Dr Rupert Sheldrake engage in a scientific discussion which continues the famous debate about the nature of life that first began at the Royal Society of Arts, London. From Sheldrake’s controversial explanation of how past forms and activities of organisms can influence organisms in the present to Wolpert’s more conventional scientific insight into current issues, such as stem-cell research, cloning and DNA . This debate presents the fundamental scientific differences between the theories of the two eminent scientists in their research on how our bodies work.
