Are our bodies merely vehicles for ensuring the immortality of our genes? How can selfish genes support kindness and altruism? Why does our understanding of the evolution of life matter?
The anniversary celebration continues and expands as Richard Dawkins discusses a lifetime of thinking and writing about science, and we commemorate the 30th anniversary of the publication of The Blind Watchmaker, the 20th anniversary of Climbing Mount Improbable, and the 10th anniversary of The God Delusion.
As our knowledge of the genome grows by leaps and bounds in the 21st century, Richard Dawkins continues to change and challenge our view of Earth's life-forms and our own human experience.
