Virus of the Mind is the first popular work devoted to the science of memetics, a controversial new field that transcends psychology, biology, anthropology, and cognitive science. Memetics is the science of memes, the invisible but very real DNA of human society.

Richard Brodie weaves together science, ethics, and current events as he raises these and other very disturbing issues relating to memes. See less
