Richard Dawkins

British evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, who served as Oxford University’s professor ‘for public understanding of science’ until 2008, is one of our most frequently recommended authors on Five Books (see our expert interviews below). Rising to public prominence with his book, The Selfish Gene, he is now as well known for his public advocacy of atheism, also a very popular subject on Five Books.
