The New York Times “Lessons from Ants to Grasp Humanity”
Funny how the media likes to trot out Jerry Coyne whenever someone questions Darwinian orthodoxy. I cannot entirely blame Coyne for how he is quoted, but his quotes never seem to offer much a substantial critique.
The bit on religion is interesting here: Wilson seems to be presenting a multi-level selection approach that advocates the importance of very large scale of organization above the level of religion (after all, religions represent pretty large groups).
Very much looking forward to reading this book myself!A Minor Post, Articles, Books, Cooperation, Group Selection, Superorganisms
