In an era of fake news, “truthiness” and outright lies, Richard Dawkins has an urgent message for the world: we need reason and science now more than ever before.
In his characteristically witty, brilliant fashion, the legendary biologist and public intellectual is calling on all of us to stand up for “the scientific way of thinking” — an approach based on evidence and logic rather than gut feelings and prejudices. Dawkins’ new career-spanning essay collection is Science in the Soul: Selected Writings of a Passionate Rationalist, and it represents a cri de cœur from our most dauntless advocate of rational thought. Hear his bold rallying cry for a truth-challenged society when he sits down with The Rubin Report’s Dave Rubin.
