Event description

To coincide with the release of the second part of his autobiography, Richard Dawkins will discuss the key individuals, institutions and ideas that have inspired and motivated him since the publication of ‘The Selfish Gene’ in 1976. He will describe his life as a scientist that has taken him from the Panama Canal, to encounters with the greatest scientific minds of the 20th Century. He will also reflect on his efforts to popularise scientific ideas, through bestselling books, fiery debates and presenting the 1991 CHRISTMAS LECTURES.


This event will be filmed and availble to watch on the Ri Channel a few weeks afterwards.
