The Purpose of Purpose – Richard Dawkins

Jun 19, 2009

During Richard Dawkins’ American tour in March 2009, he gave a talk titled “The Purpose of Purpose”. I travelled with Richard to these cities and filmed the talks, which I’ve edited together here. The content of the talk remains intact, while the editing moves between the different locations and Richard’s Keynote presentation.

Produced by The Richard Dawkins Foundation and R. Elisabeth Cornwell
