Richard Dawkins

How a Scientist Changed the Way We Think

Edited by Alan Grafen and Mark Ridley

In this exciting collection of original essays, some of the world's leading thinkers offer their take on how Dawkins has changed the way we think. Contributors include Daniel Dennett, Steven Pinker, and James Watson. Dawkins' widely admired literary style forms the subject of several pieces, including one from novelist Philip Pullman. As one of the world's best known rationalists, Dawkins' stance on religion is another theme in this collection. Numbering twenty in all, these articles are not simply rosy tributes, but explore how Dawkins' ideas have shaped thinking and public debate, and include elements of criticism as well as thoughtful praise.
