    It is sometimes said that society carries the individual as a river carries a boat. It is the gene, the unit of heredity. Dawkins is far from a genetic determinist, but he is certainly a genetic reductionist.

It fights no battles. As Porter and Kramer have pointed out through their research, benefiting the community does not have to be at the cost of the company or of society; both can work in tandem. The second edition added two more chapters. The influence of one person on another is as a rule extremely limited; the collectivity as a whole is the main educational force.
