It is based on a new perception of bodies and genes, in which the former are the end product of the latter within the continuum of evolution. Twenty ve years after Richard Dawkins helped revolutionize our thinking about sel sh genes, it is time to reevaluate.

Written by one of its foremost gures, Revolutionary Biology is a manifesto and educated laymans guide to this ongoing revolution.
