    Richard Dawkins' formulation of the meme concept in his classic "The Selfish Gene" has inspired three decades of work in what many see as the burgeoning science of memetics. Its underpinning theory proposes that human culture is composed of a multitude of particulate units, memes, which are analogous to the genes of biological transmission. From the golden-haired, curly-headed half of Simon & Garfunkel, comes a memoir (of sorts) that reveals a life and the making of a musician, that show us, as well, the evolution of a man, a portrait of a life-long friendship and of a collaboration that became the most successful singing duo in the roiling age that embraced, and was defined by, their pathfinding folk-rock music.

    Abstract. Richard Dawkins ’ concept of the meme was first formulated in his book The Selfish Gene (Oxford, ). In The Memetics of Music: A Neo-Darwinian View of Musical Structure and Culture (Ashgate, ), the first substantial text applying the concept of memetics to music, Steven Jan proposes a theory of music and an associated analytical method centred on the meme.   See more 'Memetics' images on Know Your Meme!

Me-meticists are attracted to music because of the comparatively pure syntactic nature of the in-formation contained in musical memes (espe-cially as symbols in a printed score); but it is doubtful that music theory, analysis, and his-toriography need memetics.
