about

The first collection of essays from renowned scientist and best-selling author Richard Dawkins.

 

Richard Dawkins''s essays are an enthusiastic testament to the power of rigorous, scientific examination, and they span many different corners of his personal and professional life. He revisits the meme, the unit of cultural information that he named and wrote about in his groundbreaking workThe Selfish Gene. He makes moving tributes to friends and colleagues, including a eulogy for novelist Douglas Adams; he shares correspondence with the evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould; and he visits with the famed paleoanthropologists Richard and Maeve Leakey at their African wildlife preserve. He concludes the essays with a vivid note to his ten-year-old daughter, reminding her to remain curious, to ask questions, and to live the examined life.

RICHARD DAWKINS is an emeritus fellow of New College, Oxford and was the University of Oxford''s Professor for Public Understanding of Science from 1995 until 2008. He is the author of 15 books including Unweaving the Rainbow, A Devil''s Chaplain, and The God Delusion . Dawkins lives in Oxford.,
