5.0 out of 5 stars A Delight to Read, 8 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Unweaving the Rainbow: Science, Delusion and the Appetite for Wonder (Hardcover)
Richard Dawkins gives us a reason to feel glad that we can know (a little) about so many of the things around us, and yet we can still feel a sense of wonder. The author interweaves the poetry of Keats and the science of Newton to tell us what we knew all along - we are lucky to be alive and there are glories all around us. But I for one am glad that Richard Dawkins is able to remind me of this in such an easily readable way. Many emotive subjects are touched, so there are bound to be those who feel aggrieved that their pet subject has been misrepresented. However, I think that we should always try to return to the central theme of this book: life is wonderful, and finding out something about that life does not diminish the wonder. Do not be put off by arguments about religion, non-religion or whatever. If you would like to read a sincere affirmation that knowledge and wonder can easily co-exist, buy this book and enjoy it.
