book content

THE SOCIAL CONQUEST OF EARTH finds the two-time Pulitzer Prize winning biologist and author countering the theory that evolution encourages creatures to put family first by demonstrating that group selection, not kin selection, is the primary driving force of human evolution. Demonstrating that the sources of morality, religion, and the creative arts are fundamentally biological in nature, Wilson presents us with a brilliant explanation as to the origin of the human condition and why it resulted in our domination of the Earth’s biosphere.
