Inhaltsangabe

Richard Dawkins' brilliant reformulation of the theory of natural selection has the rare distinction of having provoked as much excitement and interest outside the scientific community as within it. His theories have helped change the whole nature of the study of social biology, and have forced thousands of readers to rethink their beliefs about life.In his internationally bestselling, now classic volume, The Selfish Gene, Dawkins explains how the selfish gene can also be a subtle gene. The world of the selfish gene revolves around savage competition, ruthless exploitation, and deceit, and yet, Dawkins argues, acts of apparent altruism do exist in nature. Bees, for example, will commit suicide when they sting to protect the hive, and birds will risk their lives to warn the flock of an approaching hawk.This 30th anniversary edition of Dawkins' fascinating book retains all original material, including the two enlightening chapters added in the second edition. In a new Introduction the author presents his thoughts thirty years after the publication of his first and most famous book, while the inclusion of the two-page original Foreword by brilliant American scientist Robert Trivers shows the enthusiastic reaction of the scientific community at that time. This edition is a celebration of a remarkable exposition of evolutionary thought, a work that has been widely hailed for its stylistic brilliance and deep scientific insights, and that continues to stimulate whole new areas of research today.

    "The meme about the gene"

    Even after close to 40 years this books delivers a fascinating and compelling story about the true shapers of history. The suspense is kept throughout the book as every new concept crushes the old or at least puts it into perspective: memes as potential supergenes, genes extending their influence across living creatures and ensembles that should be regarded as single living beings, just to name of few.

    The book is full of brilliant ideas but at the same time a proof of the limiations of the human mind: the relative brief span from the publishing date to today are enough to make some apects of the book obsolete: the inability of the human race to foresee the extend of computer development, the complete negation of epigenetics and the absence of black swans in the repeated games.

    The book made me sad not to have read it 30 years ago but I enjoyed every page of it. Even made more compelling by the fact that it was read by the author and his (third) wife

    "Warning: This will change ypur view of the world."

    Absolutely amazing. I read this book 3 times already and Audio of Lala and Richard himself is amazing. Richard Dawkins explains and delivers some of the most sophisticated topics of Biology in a way, that a 10 year old would not have a problem understanding it. At the same time for some people there might be a danger, that the view of the world as we know it will be questioned over and over again. It might be quite dangerous for the reader who is not able to put things in perspective and mix the concepts of "is" and "should be". In any case what ever you are doing in your free time stop doing it now and read this book.
