Deschner Prize to Richard Dawkins


Ullstein Verlag

British evolutionary theorist and religious critic Richard Dawkins will receive the Deschner Prize at a public ceremony in Frankfurt on October 12. The prize is awarded by the Giordano Bruno Stiftung (gbs) and is worth €10,000.

With his seminal works on evolutionary theory, and also in particular with his book The God Delusion, which will finally be published in German in September 2007 under the title Der Gotteswahn, Dawkins has made an outstanding contribution to strengthen secular, scientific, and humanistic thinking, explained the gbs directorate.
