Jason Reitman #Car #Design

David Herbert Lawrence #Art #Design

Richard Dawkins #Car #Design

Photo of Richard Dawkins Design can never be an ultimate explanation for anything. It can only be a proximate explanation. A plane or a car is explained by a designer but that's because the designer himself, the engineer, is explained by natural selection.
