The interviewer is Robert Wright. He is an American journalist.

He writes about various subjects: from evolution to game theory. But his main subject is science.

He is the one who launched Blogginghead (you should have a look a the webpage of Blogginghead).

This interview is a part of the "Meaning of life" series. You might be interested by the other scholars interviewed by Wright in this series. Here is the link:
