Lunch Break Theater: Richard Dawkins: "The Purpose of Purpose"

Today’s Lunch Break Theater features a compilation of Richard Dawkins’ American tour entitled, “The Purpose of Purpose.”


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.

There were Q&A sessions after each talk, which I plan on uploading soon.
