Sex, Death and The Meaning of Life is a new series of TV documentaries fronted by Richard Dawkins. I welcome this – partly because Dawkins is an excellent communicator. But also because it’s about time some of the current ideas in the science of morality and ethics were more widely known.
The first programme in the series, SIN, was screened last Monday, on Channel 4 in the UK. I have embedded it below. It’s very informative.
There’s even a bit of humour – look out for the David Attenborough moment where Dawkins gives a description of evolution social customs around animal mating while watching humans performing on a dance floor
There are at least two other programmes in the series. LIFE AFTER DEATH and MEANING OF LIFE.
See Death – part 2 of a series for the second episode.
