Title:Why Dawkins is wrong | Denis Noble interview

In this interview, esteemed biologist Denis Noble explains why our approach to biology is the wrong way around. We thought that the sequencing of genetic information would unlock vast developments in medical cures for a whole host of illnesses. However, sequencing the genome alone hasn't revolutionised medicine. Denis Noble argues that we have our treatments the wrong way around. Instead, we need to recognise that genes are not on/off switches, and move beyond dualism in Biology. Watch world-famous scientist Richard Dawkins go head-to-head with celebrated biologist Denis Noble as they debate the role of genes over the eons at 00:00 Introduction 00:26 Why does the idea of genetic determinism have such a lasting appeal? 06:13 What do you see as the fault of this gene-centric Neo-Darwinian picture? 11:22 How did Darwin's view get distorted by Neo-Darwinism? 14:18 What is the alternative to genetic determinism? 17:55 Can determinism come from the environment? 22:37 What do you make of CRISPR and human enhancement? 24:53 What is the biggest question in molecular biology at the moment? Oxford Professor and one of the pioneers of Systems Biology, Noble developed the first viable mathematical model of the working heart in 1960. #DenisNoble #GeneticDeterminism #NeoDarwinism The Institute of Art and Ideas features videos and articles from cutting edge thinkers discussing the ideas that are shaping the world, from metaphysics to string theory, technology to democracy, aesthetics to genetics.
