By the best selling author of The Selfish Gene

'This entertaining and thought-provoking book is an excellent illustration of why the study of evolution is in such an exciting ferment these days.'


'The Extended Phenotype is a sequel to The Selfish Gene . . . he writes so clearly it could be understood by anyone prepared to make the effort'

John Maynard Smith, London Review of Books

'Dawkins is quite incapable of being boring this characteristically brilliant and stimulating book is original and provocative throughout, and immensely enjoyable.'

G. A. Parker, Heredity

'The extended phenotype is certainly a big idea and it is pressed hard in dramatic language.'

Sydney Brenner, Nature

'Richard Dawkins, our most radical Darwinian thinker, is also our best science writer.'

Douglas Adams

'Dawkins is a superb communicator. His books are some of the best books ever written on science.'

Megan Tressider, Guardian

'Dawkins is a genius of science popularization.'

Mark Ridley, The Times


Mehr über den Autor

In Nairobi, der Hauptstadt Kenias, wurde Richard Dawkins 1941 geboren. Er studierte Biologie in Oxford und wurde anschließend am dortigen New College Dozent für Zoologie. Schon bald übernahm er den Lehrstuhl für "Öffentliches Verständnis von Wissenschaft", den er bis 2008 innehatte. Durch sein Buch "Das egoistische Gen" wurde Richard Dawkins weit über wissenschaftliche Kreise hinaus bekannt; das Buch gilt als eines der zentralen Werke der Evolutionsbiologie. Dawkins ist erklärter Atheist und vehementer Streiter für die Ideen der Aufklärung.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Life's essentials 3. Juli 2006
Biodiversity is more than a buzzword for ecologists. Variation gives life its grandeur, and Richard Dawkins gives us a description of the workings of variation. Fortunately, with a sharp mind and sharper wit, he has the ability to deliver this portrayal so that nearly everyone can understand it. That's not to say this book is an easy read. Although he delivers his narration as if sitting with you in a quiet study, you may still need to review his words more than once. That's not a challenge or a chore, it's a pleasure.

Dawkins, unlike other science writers, is forthright in declaring his advocacy in writing this book. It's a refreshing start to his most serious effort. After publication of The Selfish Gene led to a storm of fatuous criticism, Extended Phenotype comes in response with more detail of how the gene manifests itself in the organism and its environment. It's clear that Dawkins' critics, who label him an "Ultra-Darwinist" [whatever that is] haven't read this book. His critics frequently argue that The Selfish Gene doesn't operate in a vacuum, but must deal within some kind of environment, from an individual cell to global scenarios. Dawkins deftly responds to critics in describing how genes rely on their environment for successful replication. If the replication doesn't survive in the environment it finds itself, then it, and perhaps its species, will die out.

The child's favourite question, "why" is difficult enough for parents and teachers to answer. Yet, as thinking humans we've become trained to deal with that question nearly every context. So well drilled that we consider something for which that question has no answer to be suspicious if not insidious.

5.0 von 5 Sternen For True Believers its not really that surprising... 18. September 2000
Von Matthew W
If you haven't read "The Selfish Gene", stop, go back and read that book. If you really _get_ the message presented there, that replicators (DNA) have built all of the life on earth, then this book is not as revealing as Dawkins seems to think it is. By this, I mean that there are no knew insights, only explanations of how DNA behaves.
I can only suppose that most readers of TSG are not actually aware of the full implications of the idea he presented in that book. If you understand that DNA builds organisms, and that genes cooperate to the extent necessary for each to insure its own continued existence, then the idea that genes in different organisms, species, etc... can cooperate is not surprising.
The reader will definitely learn a lot about how genes cooperate and compete with one another, and for this alone, the book is worth reading. But, if you understand that genes make organisms (when it suits them), and that organisms do not _use_ genes to reproduce themselves, then you may be disappointed to find that this book lacks something that a groundbreaking book like The Selfish Gene necessarily contains.
Still, highly recommended, a powerful exploration of replicator phenomenology.
(Note: if you have read this book, and think I've missed the point, please email me your interpretation, or where you think I've gone wrong.)

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good discussion for professional geneticists 6. November 1999
Having been charmed and delighted by Dawkins' landmark "The Selfish Gene," I eagerly awaited the new edition of this follow-up work. I was disappointed because it is loaded with learned argument and scholarly references which would only be meaningful to another academic. As with so many books, the basic "meat" could have been distilled down to perhaps a couple of dozen pages. The basic idea--that genes influence things outside the bodies they reside in--seems beyond argument. This 1999 edition seems to contain little new material. Unless you're a professional geneticist, read The Selfish Gene and skip this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Darwin is in the details 21. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
When Charles Darwin wrote "The Origin of Species" in 1859, he settled once and for all the question of why we exist. Since then, his successors have debated the finer points of his ingenious, elegant theory. Some have even gone so far as to reject some or all of his ideas. Richard Dawkins has been at the forefront of the debate in recent years. His concepts of the selfish gene and the extended phenotype have provided an important new perspective on evolution, expanding on, while fully consistent with, Darwin's original ideas. In fact, Dawkins is a staunch defender of all things Darwinian, not out of zeal to defend Darwinism as dogma, but because rigorous analysis has led him to the inescapable conclusion that Darwin essentially got it right. In other words, like all good scientists, he is primarily concerned with the truth. Fortunately for us, his lucid, enjoyable writing has also made a deep understanding of evolution available to anyone willing to make the effort.
