About this book
Harvard University Professor Emeritus, and eminent biologist Edward O. Wilson presents a groundbreaking book on human evolution, positing that group selection rather than kin selection is the primary driving force. Demonstrating that the sources of morality, religion and the creative arts are fundamentally biological in nature, Wilson presents a clear explanation of the origin of the human condition and why it resulted in our domination of the Earth's biosphere.
In a generational work of clarity and passion, one of the greatest living scientists directly addresses these three fundamental questions of religion, philosophy, and science. Includes 90 illustrations.
