I am excited and curious seeing three books on your bookshelf: Dennett and the two Dawkins books. I am excited because i am hoping to have found a fellow traveller – someone who is interested in NVC and in the skeptical voices of the “new atheists.” And i am curious as to why you’re reading the books – wondering if you’d be open to a dialog (maybe not here on your blog – email might ensure more privacy).

Seeing Blackmore’s book on your list, i thought you might be interested in a critique of the meme approach to cultural evolution: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/evolution-cultural/ (see esp. sections 4 & 5).
