Pulitzer Prize-winning biologist E.O. Wilson talks about the rise and domination of Homo sapiens on Earth. He spoke at the Free Library of Philadelphia on C-SPAN.
He explains where we came from and who we are, two of the big three questions, the other being where are we going. And he talks about the need for a decline in organized religion with their creation story myths, written long before modern science was even invented. It’s a must see for anyone who wants to call themselves an educated person.
Edward Wilson, an Alabama native, is the Pellegrino University Professor Emeritus at the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University. He is the author of several books, including “Sociobiology: The New Synthesis,” “On Human Nature,” the winner of the 1979 Pulitzer Prize, and “The Ants,” the winner of the 1991 Pulitzer Prize.
