About this product
- DescriptionIn this hugely entertaining sequel to the <em>New York Times</em> bestselling memoir <em>An Appetite for Wonder</em>, Richard Dawkins cheerfully, mischievously, looks back on a lifetime of tireless intellectual adventure and engagement. Dawkins offers here a candid look both at what encouraged him to shift his attention from the laboratory to the intersection of culture, religion, and science and at many of the primary figures in the merger between scientific and literary fields kwn to some as The Third Culture. <em>Brief Candle in the Dark</em> allows the listener new insight into the brilliant succession of influential books that grew naturally out of his busy life, highlighting the ideas that connect them and excavating their origins. Throughout, Dawkins shares with us his infectious sense of wonder at the natural world, his enjoyment of the absurdities of human interaction, and his bracing awareness of life's brevity: all of which have made a deep imprint on our culture.
