The Selfish Gene is frequently misread as a biological justification for ruthless behavior. In this classic program, author Richard Dawkins sets the record straight through an exploration of selfishness and enlightened self-interest built upon evidence from the Prisoner's Dilemma game and real-world non-zero-sum social situations. "The tragedy of the commons," symbiotic behavior among animals, benign cooperation between stalemated armies during the First World War, and Robert Axelrod's findings from his landmark Prisoner's Dilemma computer program tournament are considered. Also, footage of a simple Prisoner's Dilemma experiment being conducted is included.
