Richard Dawkins: The Greatest Show on Earth

A documentary made upon the book: The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution, by the biologist Professor Richard Dawkins, who has spent a lifetime educating the general public about the basic principles and mechanism behind the evolution.

Nice Guys Finish First

Nice Guys Finish First is a 1986 documentary by Richard Dawkins which discusses selfishness and cooperation, arguing that evolution often favors co-operative behavior, and focusing especially on the tit for tat strategy of the prisoner’s dilemma game.
I find it very interesting to see examples of cooperation emerging spontaneously, very often for the sake of preserving some balance. There are many examples in our society, such as a football match in which opposing teams decided to cooperate and make it a draw rather than trying to best one another. A more extreme example are two opposing armies in a war; it happens in every war that opposing soldiers decide to cooperate, realizing that doing so actually helps them survive.

The Poetry of Science: Richard Dawkins and Neil deGrasse Tyson

Two of science’s luminaries converse on the beauty of science. Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist and host of NOVA and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins will explore the wonders of the Cosmos and of Life, its origins, its inspirations, and why science is not just an option, it is the only reality we possess.

This is a brilliant talk by some of the brightest scientific minds. Both of them great speakers and great teachers.
