Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Richard Dawkins, Lalla Ward

Philosophy & Religion • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

An evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins sees religion as a human construct that is the source of much of the evil in the world, closing people’s minds to scientific truths, oppressing women, and threatening people with eternal damnation. As “Darwin’s rottweiller,” he sets out to annihilate faith. His book-length essay is a bestseller. Since he is human, though, his own understanding of the universe, though devilishly complex, must be based on a hypothesis, a hunch, on faith. Dawkins and his wife, the actress Lalla Ward, perform this book as melody and harmony in two voices. For example, Dawkins will set up a quotation from Einstein, and Ward will speak the lines. Since both have fine English voices, the performance would succeed as music even if it weren’t an intellectual tour de force. B.H.C.
