Growing Up in the Universe is a series of lectures given by Oxford professor Richard Dawkins as part of the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, in which he discussed many scientific and philosophical concepts. With brilliance and clarity, Dawkins unravels an educational gem that will mesmerize young and old alike. Illuminating demonstrations, wildlife, virtual reality, and special guests (including Douglas Adams) all combine to make this collection a timeless classic. The lectures were first broadcast in 1991, in the form of five one-hour episodes which are all present here.
