Pressestimmen

Wilson 's newest theory...could transform our understanding of human nature and provide hope for our stewardship of the planet.... [His] new book is not limited to the discussion of evolutionary biology, but ranges provocatively through the humanities.... Its impact on the social sciences could be as great as its importance for biology, advancing human self-understanding in ways typically associated with the great philosophers. --Howard W. French

E. O. Wilson 's passionate curiosity the hallmark of his remarkable career has led him to these urgent reflections on the human condition. At the core of The Social Conquest of Earth is the unresolved, unresolvable tension in our species between selfishness and altruism. Wilson brilliantly analyzes the force, at once creative and destructive, of our biological inheritance and daringly advances a grand theory of the origins of human culture. This is a wonderful book for anyone interested in the intersection of science and the humanities. --Stephen Greenblatt, author of "The Swerve: How the World Became Modern"

Biologist E. O. Wilson 's brilliant new volume, The Social Conquest of Earth, could more aptly be entitled Biology 's Conquest of Science . Drawing on his deep understanding of entomology and his extraordinarily broad knowledge of the natural and social sciences, Wilson makes a strong case for the synthesis of knowledge across disciplines. Understanding the biological origin of what makes us human can help us to build better theories of social and psychological interaction; in turn, understanding how other social species have evolved may help us to better understand the origin of our own. But the main reason that Wilson 's book is successful is that he also brings into biology the best of what social science has to offer. --James H. Fowler

An ambitious and thoroughly engaging work that 's certain to generate controversy within the walls of academia and without Provocative, eloquent and unflinchingly forthright, Wilson remains true to form, producing a book that 's anything but dull and bound to receive plenty of attention from supporters and critics alike. --Colin Woodard

Wilson 's examples of insect eusociality are dazzling There are obvious parallels with human practices like war and agriculture, but Wilson is also sensitive to the differences This book offers a detailed reconstruction of what we know about the evolutionary histories of these two very different conquerors. Wilson 's careful and clear analysis reminds us that scientific accounts of our origins aren t just more accurate than religious stories; they are also a lot more interesting. --Paul Bloom

Reading E. O. Wilson's Social Conquest of Earth is a revolutionary look at who we are, where we've come from and where we're going. It's very hopeful in that he suggests that we have the capacity to learn to live within the planet's means. I personally call this the sweet spot in history. Never before have we had the knowledge and opportunity as good as we have now to make change. The great message Wilson conveys is that there's still time. --Kate Murphy

Wilson has done an impressive job of pulling all this evidence together and analyzing it. His interdisciplinary approach, his established scholarship, and his willingness to engage hot-button issues are all much in evidence in The Social Conquest of Earth . His reflections on this subject are varied, original, and thought provoking as is the rest of his book. --Carl Coon"
