Book Description
This is a revised edition with a new afterword by Daniel C. Dennett. The Extended Phenotype carries on from where Dawkins's "The Selfish Gene" takes off. It is a fascinating look at the evolution of life and natural selection. Dawkins's theory is that individual organisms are replicators that have extended phenotypic effects on society and the world at large, thus our genes have the ability to manipulate other individuals. A worldwide bestseller, this book has become a classic in popular science writing.
