內容簡介


1976年,三十年前Richard Dawkins出版了《The Selfish Gene》轟動了當時的科普界,Dawkins認為基因是自私的,基因因為自私的本性才會導致生物本身的物種進化,這樣的狀況與人類息息相關,書中以自然界中多種動物的物競爭與合作實際案,讓讀者瞭解例「利他」與「自私」兩種生物界中最常見的本質,人類的進化也與這樣的基因產生連結。Dawkins出版該書的時候只是牛津大學的講師,當時書籍一出版甚至登上英國Waterstone書店票選最能代表20世紀的一百本好書之一。如今該書已經出版超過三十個年頭,英國牛津大學出版社出版了三十週年的紀念版本,也同時出版了有關Richard Dawkins的傳記作品。

The million copy international bestseller, critically acclaimed and translated into over 25 languages.


As influential today as when it was first published, The Selfish Gene has become a classic exposition of evolutionary thought. Professor Dawkins articulates a gene's eye view of evolution - a view giving centre stage to these persistent units of information, and in which organisms can be seen as vehicles for their replication. This imaginative, powerful, and stylistically brilliant work not only brought the insights of Neo-Darwinism to a wide audience, but galvanized the biology community, generating much debate and stimulating whole new areas of research. Forty years later, its insights remain as relevant today as on the day it was published.

This 40th anniversary edition includes a new epilogue from the author discussing the continuing relevance of these ideas in evolutionary biology today, as well as the original prefaces and foreword, and extracts from early reviews.

Oxford Landmark Science books are 'must-read' classics of modern science writing which have crystallized big ideas, and shaped the way we think.
