Author: Richard Dawkins
Richard Dawkins is a well-known English evolutionary biologist, ethologist, and writer. He is perhaps best known for his book "The Selfish Gene," which popularized the concept of gene-centered evolution. Dawkins is also a prominent atheist and has been a vocal critic of religion throughout his career. As an evolutionary biologist, Dawkins has made significant contributions to our understanding of how genes shape behavior and influence evolutionary processes. He introduced the concept of the "meme" in his book "The Selfish Gene," suggesting that ideas can spread through culture in a similar way to how genes spread through populations.
