Human nature is genetically determined, but to what extent? And does the acceptance of evolutionary theory as the basis for social behaviour diminish our humanity? In this controversial book, Edward Wilson argues that science offers us true liberation. 'A work of high intellectual daring ... here is an accomplished biologist explaining, in notably clear and unprevaricating language, what he thinks his subject now has to offer to the understanding of man and society.' New Republic
