The Selfish Gene was first published by Oxford University Press in in eleven chapters with a preface by the author and a foreword by Robert Trivers.

The Selfish Gene au: Thompson follows with a detailed examination of the concept of DNA as a look-up-table and the role of the cell in orchestrating the DNA-to-RNA transcriptionindicating that by anyone’s account the DNA is hardly the whole story.

Williams ‘s book Adaptation and Natural Selectionwhich argued that altruism is not based upon group benefit per se but is a result of selection that occurs “at the level of the gene mediated by the phenotype ”  and any selection at the group level occurred only under rare circumstances.
Although Dawkins agrees that groups can assist survival, they rank as a “vehicle” for survival only if the group activity is replicated in descendants, recorded in the gene, the gene being the only true replicator.
The Self-organization of Brain and Behavior. Hull suggests that, despite some similarities, Dawkins takes too narrow a view of these terms, engendering some of the objections to his views.
Memetics has become the subject of many studies since the publication of the book.
