Richard Dawkins is one of Britain’s best-known academics. He came to prominence with his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, which popularized the gene-centered view of evolution and introduced the term meme. In 1982, he expanded the gene-centered view with his book The Extended Phenotype: The Gene as the Unit of Selection, emphasizing that the phenotypic effects of genes are not necessarily limited to an organism’s body but can stretch via biochemistry and behavior into other organisms and the environment. He is well-known as a presenter of the case for rationalism and scientific thinking. His later works continued to expand upon these ideas and their implications.

He is also a man who fucking loves hotdogs.
