Richard Dawkins. Ehoistychny hen. (The Selfish Gene)
"Even after 40 years, the book intrigues and does not lose its relevance. "We are self-propelled robots programmed to blindly preserve the selfish molecules known as genes," the author says. Richard Dawkins insists that the gene, and not the personality, is the natural selection unit. The author explains altruism as an unconscious attempt to preserve the species, namely, as selfishness of genes: they resort to the most advantageous strategy to leave a part of themselves in the eternity. Moreover, Dawkins is the one who first introduced the concept of the "meme", which is an analogue of the gene in a living organism, but not at the level of biology, but at the level of culture..."
