Pioneer of The Selfish Gene Theory, Richard Dawkins Hosts a Night In New York City
Ethologist and author Richard Dawkins hosts a night of his thoughts, ideas and theories at the Beacon Theatre in New York. Dawkins first gained notoriety with the release of his 1976 book 'The Selfish Gene', where he describes the Gene-centered view of evolution as being a "selfish gene."
The controversial author has written eleven books on subjects ranging from religion, evolution and science and has become famous for his atheist and anti-religion views. He opposed the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the US presidency of George W. Bush and the ethics surrounding designer babies.
