A Devil's Chaplain: Reflections on Hope, Lies, Science and Love - Richard Dawkins
(*)
Richard Dawkins:
A Devil's Chaplain: Reflections on Hope, Lies, Science and Love - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 0618335404

ID: 3811446

One of the most renowned evolutionary biologists at work today, Richard Dawkins has written passionately for years on subjects that matter deeply to him - and matter urgently to all of us. A Devil's Chaplain brings together the best and most provocative of his essays, on subjects ranging from evolution to ethics, from travel to literature, from education to religion. The result is an intriguing portrait of one of the finest minds in science. With eloquence and vigor, these essays put forward Dawkins's most fundamental axiom: seek truth. He speaks out against pseudoscience and deftly dissects religion and mysticism. In a powerful letter to his ten-year-old daughter, he argues for the necessity of basing any belief on solid evidence. And he doesn't shy away from skewering the loftiest institutions, whether judicial or educational. "To hell with . . . your fact-stuffed syllabuses and your endless roster of exams," he proclaims with refreshing directness. He writes infectiously of his awe at the marvelous complexity of the universe, pays moving tribute to dear friends and worthy colleagues, and tenderly recalls his boyhood in Africa. Uncompromising, even ruthless as Dawkins famously is when defending scientific truth and reason, this collection also shows a gentler, more contemplative side which may surprise his many readers. Here we meet the essential Richard Dawkins: inspirational in both his unswerving attention to rationalism and his abiding passions. biological sciences,biology,education and reference,essays and commentary,literary,literary criticism and collections,literature,literature and fiction,philosophy,politics and social sciences Biology, Houghton Mifflin

[EAN: 9780618335404], Gebraucht, guter Zustand, [PU: Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston and New York], COLLECTIBLE, Literary Collections|Essays, Science|Essays, Jacket, vi, 263 pages, illustrations; 24 cm. Tight, clean copy. Stated "First Edition." Fine DJ. A fine copy of the first printing. "Best-selling author Richard Dawkins offers another dazzling gift to his readers--his first collection of essays on what matters most to him and should matter to all of us. A Devil's Chaplain resounds with Dawkins's piquant rallying cries against pseudoscience and other follies. Eloquently, avidly, he dissects religion, mysticism, and even today's educational methods. "To hell with . . . your fact-stuffed syllabuses and your endless roster of exams." he proclaims. But he also shares his delights. Gurus' visions "are not nearly wild enough" to compete with the remarkable nature of the universe. And he writes movingly of friends, such as Douglas Adams, and his love for Africa, his boyhood home. In A Devil's Chaplain, Dawkins inspires readers with his unswerving attention to rationalism and warms their hearts with his abiding passions. / Richard Dawkins taught zoology at the University of California at Berkeley and at Oxford University and is now the Charles Simonyi Professor of the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford, a position he has held since 1995. Among his previous books are The Ancestor's Tale, The Selfish Gene, The Blind Watchmaker, Climbing Mount Improbable, Unweaving the Rainbow, and A Devil's Chaplain. Dawkins lives in Oxford with his wife, the actress and artist Lalla Ward." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
