Join us for a discussion of The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins. Dawkins' reformulation of the theory of natural selection has provoked much excitement and interest inside and outside the scientific community. In The Selfish Gene, Dawkins explains how the world of the selfish gene revolves around savage competition, ruthless exploitation, and deceit, and yet, acts of apparent altruism do exist in nature.
