Heroes of Evolution: Richard Dawkins

 

 

For the first time in this lecture series, I will discuss a still living icon of evolution. Richard Dawkins has had an immense impact in his lifetime on the advancement of evolutionary theory as well as science advocacy. His energy and commitment to science are still ongoing today. The talk will discuss his scientific work as well as highlight some of his activities advocating for rational thinking. The talk will consist of three sections: 

Scientific Work

The Selfish Gene and select other books for the nonscience audience and their effect on science and culture

Advocacy for Skepticism and Atheism
