Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge by Edward O Wilson

john.modra, November 29, 2006

To be frank, I live in australia and i don't have access to this book ,but I like where Wilson is moving -I've read others of his work on that great grabbag on GRIST .
His great contribution to post millenium debate is his clear challenge to recognise , not only the unity of knowledge, but the limits of knowledge. What I will be interested in will be whether he thinks we really know enough to talk confidently about the former when we seem to be nowhere near understanding the latter . As posted on
