Richard Dawkins on memes, Oxford, 2014

The blurb reads: An extract from Richard Dawkin's open Q&A session at the Oxford Union on 18th February 2014.

I think this talk illustrates replicator rot. IMO, this conception of a meme is a dead end and isn't suitable for use as the basis of a science of culture. However, we don't have to define memes in the exact same way as Dawkins.
