“I read Matthew’s book in one go on a Wednesday morning. It stirred many feelings in me, and reminded me that there are many others as excited as me about discovery in science and in life itself, which was inspiring. His book is a fascinating journey that navigates the evolution of science and soul; science and soul as seen through the eyes and works of the many creative and destructive facets of man himself. The conflict between deterministic and stochastic systems perhaps shouldn’t be resolved, but intertwined – such as life and death itself, and perceived as the ever-ongoing ebb and flow of creation that it is. I believe that in the end, there is a beginning… and so forth.”

“When I read something by Matthew Ehret, I expect it to be not only thoughtful and well-written but on the scale of mind-bending. Science Unshackled fulfills that tall order. It leaves me with a brand new way to look at, understand and think about science – a new worldview. To paraphrase Thomas Kuhn, although the world does not change with a change of paradigm, the reader afterward perceives science (and economics and politics) from a different world. Ehret helps the reader to step back from immediate, urgent and pressing issues by providing historical context, without which we’re unable to see patterns and likely to jump to wrong conclusions. It allows us to see a much bigger picture and draw our own level-headed conclusions. This is a book well worth reading!“

“Matthew Ehret has written a series of thought-provoking essays, arguing that we should revive a minority position in science, whose roots go back at least to Pythagoras and Plato, a position which was held and supported by some of the greatest artists and scientists in history. This tradition is based on the certainty that the universe is organized according to higher principles, which are both knowable and discoverable, through study, observation and introspection. This tradition, called “Platonic” in the West, is opposed to the Aristotelian tradition of deduction from a priori principles, deemed to be self-evident, often anything but that; as well as to the (Francis) Baconian tradition of empiricism, i.e., induction from observations, also known as sense perceptions… Looking at the content of science, Ehret insists on the interconnectedness of the cosmos, this at three levels. First, the different scientific disciplines should share the same metaphysical principles, as opposed to all being based on mutually contradictory ideas. Second, the universe is, as assumed by both Plato and Kepler, harmonic, with resonances ensuring the stability of entities such as the Solar System. Third, the different levels of the universe should all work with the same universal principles… I encourage people to read this book, and take advantage of each of the chapters to do their own research, and begin their own discoveries.“

“In a time when Westerners are forced to choose between two dead-end camps—either be labeled as “science-denier” or a believer in mainstream eugenic pseudoscience—Matt Ehret’s Science Unshackled: Restoring Causality to a World in Chaos transcends the binary. This book weaves together concepts which have been systematically compartmentalized: math, science, history, philosophy and art, by a ruling class which has no love for humanity. Ehret thoroughly exposes the corruption of science, and offers an introduction to a holistic outlook with potential to unshackle the mind.“

“In his hugely important Science Unshackled, Matthew Ehret takes us on an exciting journey from Plato through today that proves the existence of two distinct and separate visions of science and explains the importance of such giants as Kepler and Leibnitz in furthering the Platonic vision. Inspired by the ideas of American philosopher Lyndon Larouche, Ehret describes the evolution of a concept of a living universe, knowable by man, of infinite creativity and goodness. Contrasted with this is the deadly materialism of Aristotle, down through the anti-human teachings of scarcity and “entropy” exemplified by Newton, Locke, Malthus, Adam Smith, Darwin, and characters like Bertrand Russell, for whom life is a dog-eat-dog struggle for pleasure and dominance. Along the way, Ehret demolishes the pretentions of “Big Bang Theory,” “Limits of Growth,” “Global Warming,” “Overpopulation,” and other politically-motivated attacks on humanity by the Club of Rome/Bill Gates/World Economic Forum crowd of genocidal oligarchs. Ehret’s optimistic and inspiring vision opens the door to a new world of positive human development explained in his many books and the work of the Canadian Patriot Review. Science Unshackled is a work of universal importance that can inspire a renaissance in our approach not only to science but to economics, politics, and education.“

“Matthew Ehret’s new book is called Science Unshackled – Restoring Causality in a World in Chaos. He begins with an interesting word of autobiography describing his changing worldviews and the pathway that led him to this work. One of the mentors he found was Plato (429-347 BC). As he put it, Plato became his closest friend and dialogue partner. One of the main characters of the book is the astronomer Johannes Kepler (1571-1630). He discusses many important aspects of Kepler’s procedure in sciences and some of the main reasons why he succeeded where many others failed. Ehret presents an interesting discussion of the controversy between Isaac Newton (1642-1727) and Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716). The first Appendix of the book is devoted to Leibniz. He also presents briefly the electrodynamics developed by André-Marie Ampère (1775-1826), Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777-1855) and Wilhelm Weber (1804-1891) which was suppressed at the end of the XIXth century and during the whole of the XXth due to the dominance of the electromagnetic field paradigm. He discusses, in particular, Weber’s planetary model of the atom in which the nuclei are stable due to the purely electrodynamic force of Weber, without needing the concept of nuclear forces. In another front he presents some arguments why the big bang cosmology might be finally coming to an end and shows some fallacies of this model. In this connection it is relevant his presentation of the work of the late astronomer Halton Arp (1927-2013). Arp discovered that many quasars with high redshift were physically associated with galaxies of much lower redshift. He concluded that these quasars had been ejected from active galactic nuclei and that their redshift was intrinsic, probably connected with its age, and was not due to a Doppler effect. This point of view was not accepted by most astronomers working with the big bang cosmology, who still maintain that quasars are at the edge of the universe.
This book should be of interest of anyone willing to know about the clashes of worldviews, different paradigms in science and in society in general. Even if you do not agree with all of Ehret’s points of view, this work will make you reflect about most of modern science, to question what appears on the media and in the textbooks. You can become a more critical thinker, which is one of the important things a good book can bring about.“

“This book is fountain of creativity as of joy for those who have already come to observe certain incongruencies and falsehoods about their country’s political history or about the narrative of events that shaped the world. Matt Ehret manages to provide a systematic overhaul of basic foundations for the concept of Science as a constructive force for the good of humanity, unshackling it from the political use as a ‘Science of Limits’. ‘Science Unshackled’ will open your eyes to help you in connecting the dots.“

“Is the Universe open or closed? Was Darwin right? Do tiny, random incremental genetic changes account for the infinite complexity and variety of life on Earth and throughout the Universe? Is Deep Space an empty, barren void? Was Isaac Newton right to declare God a Celestial Mechanical clockmaker and an incompetent one at that?
Must we – on pain of burning, censorship, smothering or worst of all – faked intellectual ridicule – accept the patent absurdity of a Big Bang as the terminus a quo of Everything leading to an inevitable and unavoidable heat death of the Universe?
These are not small or trivial questions: And the fact that false answers to them have brainwashed the thinking processes of the so-called educated populations of billions of people across the world for at least 150 years at least is not trivial either.
As it happens, I agree with many, indeed most, of the arguments and conclusions that Matthew Ehret propounds and documents in this vastly important book. The very fact that I do not agree with all of them, or am required to, is yet another proof that testimony to the honesty and intellectual integrity and value of this work.
Matt Ehret has produced a crucial primer and scientific guide that is a vital step on the road to freeing the human race from the maze of philosophical and scientific absurdities it has been brainwashed into swallowing mindlessly through the modern era of Anglo-American global scientific dominance, The collapse of civilization we now see on every side is far too ample testimony to the worthlessness and fraudulence of these principles and teachings. The solution, as Ehret rightly realizes and vigorously contends, is not to abandon rationality, observation and the scientific method but rather to embrace them and employ them honestly and thoroughly. In open debate and expression of ideas and technologies, great advances always appear and flourish.
Science Unshackled is a beautiful and irresistible primal force. And Ehret is its worthy champion. It is a pleasure and a privilege to endorse and recommend this important work.”

“It takes a brave soul to decide to review the history of the epistemology of science from the time of Plato until today, but that’s what author Matt Ehret has done in Science Unshackled. Ehret highlights the philosophical divide between great thinkers like Gottfried Leibniz, Albert Einstein, and Vladimir Vernadsky, who understood the universe as fashioned in harmony with the advance of human progress, and the host of scientists anointed by the British financial oligarchy, such as Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and the gaggle of neo-Malthusian environmentalists who largely dominate “science” today. Be prepared to be shocked by the forthright statements of intent that Ehret has unearthed in the writings and correspondence of these “authorities.” It turns out that today’s “science” is not so objective after all. You will learn a lot from this book.”
