"Atlas Hugged signals a revolution in the way we see the world and our rightful place within it. Not a violent revolution, thankfully, but an intellectual revolution."
With these words, David Sloan Wilson invites readers into a fictional world that mirrors events taking place in the real world-the rapid evolution of worldwide cooperation. Wilson is uniquely positioned to tell this story. As a scientist, he helped to lay the theoretical foundation for the intellectual revolution with books such as Unto Others (with philosopher Elliott Sober), Darwin's Cathedral, and Does Altruism Exist? As a nonfiction writer, his books Evolution for Everyone, The Neighborhood Project, and This View of Life already reach a wide audience. With Atlas Hugged, Wilson returns to his familial roots as the son of novelist Sloan Wilson, who helped to define the 1950s with his novels The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit and A Summer Place. There is nothing like a story for conveying a moral worldview. Atlas Hugged is many things, but above all it is a story of two young people trying to tell right from wrong without needing to peer through a tissue of lies.
