preesFEBRUARY 13, Thursday 6.30-7.30pm, Philippa Rees – Involution-An Odyssey Reconciling Science to God

When Philippa Rees offered involution as a scientific thesis at Cambridge forty years ago, it received open scorn from scientists for its revolutionary hypothesis. It proposed that the language and methods of science, precluded perception of what underpins science and creation itself. That was before science caught up; it might be ready now. “Involution – An Odyssey Reconciling Science to God” has been called ‘…a brilliant and profoundly erudite epic…a heroic intellectual tour de force…’ (by David Lorimer, the Director of the Scientific and Medical Network) and both ‘brave…and totally insightful’ (by Ervin Laszlo) but the book defies description; it breaks all the rules and is unlike any other. It is so comprehensive in its sweep, original in its writing, and its synthesis, that to isolate any aspect is to misrepresent all the others.

Philippa Rees was born in South Africa in 1941. At University she studied Psychology and Zoology under both the seminal palaeontologist Raymond Dart and the ‘father of embryology’ B. I. Balinsky. The academic underpinning of this book was offered in lectures on Saints and Scientists at Bristol University, building an arts and music centre, raising four daughters, and living in Somerset, which continues.


sir_julian_roseFEBRUARY 20, Thursday 6.30-7.30pm, Sir Julian Rose – In Defence of Life: Essays on a Radical Reworking of Green Wisdom

In his book In Defence of Life Julian Rose presents a penetrating series of essays calling for urgent action to overcome the perilous state of our planet, at the local as well as global level. He both guides and challenges his readers to share with him a journey through the matrix-maze, and to come out at the other end a more aware and more self-assured human being. Drawing upon his life experiences as a farmer, campaigner, artist and social entrepreneur, Julian brings to our consciousness a way to break through the destructive patterns of our consumer-obsessed society and discover a simpler and more fulfilling way forward. Using essays exploring a wide range of pressing planetary concerns, he calls upon his readers to utilise the largely untapped power of their deeper instincts in coming to the aid of a severely depleted global environment and in striving for the amelioration of mankind’s perilous human condition.

Sir Julian Rose, 5th Baronet, a leading exponent of organic farming who commenced the transformation of the Hardwick Estate in South Oxfordshire to the standards of organic farming in 1975. An actor and a writer. He has broadcast regularly with the BBC and authored hundreds of articles on ‘green’ issues. He is currently President of The International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside.
