The Magic of Reality by Richard Dawkins – review

2011/09/26

“Myths and fables are the first Just So stories; they tell us what we would like to know. Science tells us what we may know, along with why and how we may know it. Myths endure because, at their best, they are great stories. The narrative of science is always incomplete, continuously under revision, and seldom delivers a neat ending or a consoling moral. Even so, as Richard Dawkins confirms again and again in this book – his first for “a family audience” – science composes stories as thrilling as Homer, as profound as Job, and as entertaining as anything by Kipling.”
