Richard Dawkins to speak at ISU Nov. 17

CATEGORIES: Uncategorized


Richard Dawkins, evolutionary biologist and secularist, is the Charles Simonyi Professor of the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford. The publication of his book, "The Selfish Gene," in 1976 sparked a revolution in biology and made Dawkins well known beyond his field of study. His most recent book is "An Appetite for Wonder: The Making of a Scientist." His many other publications include The Ancestor’s Tale, The Blind Watchmaker, Climbing Mount Improbable, Unweaving the Rainbow, and A Devil’s Chaplain. Bioethics Program Director Clark Wolf will moderate the discussion.
