Overview

On Human Nature: With a new Preface, Revised Edition / Edition 2

View a collection of videos on Professor Wilson entitled "On the Relation of Science and the Humanities"

In his new preface E. O. Wilson reflects on how he came to write this book: how The Insect Societies led him to write Sociobiology, and how the political and religious uproar that engulfed that book persuaded him to write another book that would better explain the relevance of biology to the understanding of human behavior.

There has always been a polarity between science and religion. I say that this work is as profound a scientific analysis of divine handiwork that ever was. Insulting this objective analysis of divine handiwork seems to me an insult of divinity itself.

Typical 'crap' about how human beings are just bugs with bigger brains and that there is no free will nor rational altruism!
