'We may unweave the rainbow, but we put together something far more beautiful.' - Richard Dawkins
More and more frequently, science is accused of promoting an arid and joyless message, of robbing our lives of what makes them worth living. Richard Dawkins shows how science, properly understood, does not expose the pointlessness of our lives in a vast, meaningless universe, but instead enhances the poetry of experience by revealing the workings of the natural world in its full wonder.
In 1995 Richard Dawkins became the first holder of the Charles Simonyi Chair of the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University. He is the bestselling author of THE SELFISH GENE, THE BLIND WATCHMAKER (Penguin, 1988) and CLIMBING MOUNT IMPROBABLE (Penguin, 1996).
