Dawkins has been central to kick-starting new conversations and debates surrounding creationism and intelligent design. His gene-centric view of evolution helped popularize the radical new understanding of Darwinism.
In the sequel to his bestselling memoir, Dawkins offers a candid look at the remarkable events and ideas that encouraged him to shift his attention to the intersection of culture, religion and science.
