4-CD set, Abridged Audio Book "Virus of the Mind "is the first popular work devoted to the science of "memetics, "a controversial new field that transcends psychology, biology, anthropology, and cognitive science. Memetics is the science of "memes, " the invisible but very real DNA of human society.Here, the author carefully builds on the work of scientists Richard Dawkins, Douglas Hofstadter, Daniel Dennett, and others who have become fascinated with memes and their potential impact on our lives. Mind viruses have already infected governments, educational systems, and inner cities, leading to some of the most pervasive and troublesome problems of society today: youth gangs, the welfare cycle, the deterioration of the public schools, and ever-growing government bureaucracy.Richard Brodie weaves together science, ethics, and current events as he raises these and other very disturbing issues relating to memes.
