The Social Conquest of Earth. EO Wilson. We’re going to wade into some controversy in this book. Be prepared to defend your views!

EO Wilson argues group selection, not kin selection, is the premier driving force in human evolution. Wilson explains how our innate drive to belong to a group is a great blessing and a terrible course. He argues the sources of morality, religion, and the creative arts are fundamentally biological in nature. This book had quite a bit of criticism, which you can explore. An excerpt of a review by most recent author, Jerry Coyne, is here https://whyevolutioni… The Carnegie Library has 19 copies. You can buy the book from as $5.01 plus shipping.

We should have a table reserved for us on second floor.
