Selfish Beings (Selfish Beings, Book 1):Carina. ePub First edition J L Morris
The million copy international bestseller, critically acclaimed and translated into over 25 languages. As influential today as when it was first published, The Selfish Gene has become a classic exposition of evolutionary thought. Professor Dawkins articulates a gene´s eye view of evolution - a view giving centre stage to these persistent units of information, and in which organisms can be seen as vehicles for their replication. This imaginative, powerful, and stylistically brilliant work not only brought the insights of Neo-Darwinism to a wide audience, but galvanized the biology community, generating much debate and stimulating whole new areas of research. Forty years later, its insights remain as relevant today as on the day it was published. This 40th anniversary edition includes a new epilogue from the author discussing the continuing relevance of these ideas in evolutionary biology today, as well as the original prefaces and foreword, and extracts from early reviews. Oxford Landmark Science books are ´must-read´ classics of modern science writing which have crystallized big ideas, and shaped the way we think.

Selfish Reasons to Have More Kids:Why Being a Great Parent is Less Work and More Fun Than You Think. 1. Auflage Bryan Caplan
Richard Dawkins´ brilliant reformulation of the theory of natural selection has the rare distinction of having provoked as much excitement and interest outside the scientific community as within it. His theories have helped change the whole nature of the study of social biology, and have forced thousands of readers to rethink their beliefs about life.In his internationally bestselling, now classic volume, The Selfish Gene, Dawkins explains how the selfish gene can also be a subtle gene. The world of the selfish gene revolves around savage competition, ruthless exploitation, and deceit, and yet, Dawkins argues, acts of apparent altruism do exist in nature. Bees, for example, will commit suicide when they sting to protect the hive, and birds will risk their lives to warn the flock of an approaching hawk.This 30th anniversary edition of Dawkins´ fascinating book retains all original material, including the two enlightening chapters added in the second edition. In a new Introduction the author presents his thoughts thirty years after the publication of his first and most famous book, while the inclusion of the two-page original Foreword by brilliant American scientist Robert Trivers shows the enthusiastic reaction of the scientific community at that time. This edition is a celebration of a remarkable exposition of evolutionary thought, a work that has been widely hailed for its stylistic brilliance and deep scientific insights, and that continues to stimulate whole new areas of research today. 1.

The Selfish Pig´s Guide To Caring:How to cope with the emotional and practical aspects of caring for someone Piatkus Books Hugh Marriott
Disclaimer: This is not the original book. An entirely different approach to one of the most controversial theories in the world. The Selfish Gene is a reformulation of the theory of natural selection developed by Charles Darwin. This classic is focused on the nature of altruism and selfishness that creatures have. Despite that any living creature is focused on his well-being, the study reveals that they have a natural sense of altruism as well. Many creatures have a tendency of sacrificing themselves for their loved ones’ safety. Note: This summary is wholly written and published by readtrepreneur.com. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way. ´´Any altruistic system is inherently unstable, because it is open to abuse by selfish individuals, ready to exploit it.” (Richard Dawkins) Richard Dawkins’ title is an interesting look into the nature of living creatures. It´s an incredibly complex topic developed perfectly so any person interested in listening to it can enjoy and learn a lot from the book. Richard Dawkins reveals many things we didn’t know about Charles Darwin’s natural selection theory. P.S. The Selfish Gene is an extremely informative book which will teach you a lot about the most primal side of any living creature. Disclaimer once again: This book is meant for great companionship to the original book or to simply get the gist of the original book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thomas Pedrosa.
