Evolutionary Biologist; Author, The Selfish Gene, The God Delusion and An Appetite for Wonder: The Making of a Scientist
In conversation with Kishore Hari, Director, Bay Area Science Festival
Dawkins has been central to the debates surrounding creationism, intelligent design and religion. He coined the word meme, and his gene-centric view of evolution helped popularize the radical new understanding of Darwinism.
From his early childhood in Africa to his educational awakening at Oxford, Dawkins shares his personal experiences that shaped his remarkable life and intellectual development.
