Product Details


“A dazzling journey across the sciences and humanities in search of deep laws to unite them.” —The Wall Street Journal 

“An original work of synthesis . . . a program of unrivalled ambition: to unify all the major branches of knowledge—sociology, economics, the arts and religion—under the banner of science.” —The New York Times

“As elegant in its prose as it is rich in its ideas . . . a book of immense importance.” —Atlanta Journal & Constitution

“Edward O. Wilson is a hero. . . he has made landmark scientific discoveries and has a writing style to die for. . . . A complex and nuanced argument.” —Boston Globe

“One of the clearest and most dedicated popularizers of science since T. H. Huxley. . . . Mr. Wilson can do the science and the prose.” —Time

“An excellent book. Wilson provides superb overviews of Western intellectual history and the current state of understanding in many academic disciplines.” — Slate

“The Renaissance scholar still lives. . . .  A sensitive, wide-ranging mind discoursing beautifully. . . .  Wilson’s buoyant intellectual courage is bracing.” —Seattle Weekly
