A Conversation with Richard Dawkins

November 4, 2019

In this episode of the Making Sense podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Richard Dawkins. They discuss the strangeness of the “gene’s-eye view” of the world, the limits of Darwinian thinking when applied to human life, the concept of the extended phenotype, ideologies as meme complexes, whether consciousness might be an epiphenomenon, psychedelics, meditation, and other topics.

Richard Dawkins is an ethologist, evolutionary biologist, and writer. His latest book is Outgrowing God: A Beginner’s Guide.
