Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the world's greatest living scientists, Edward O. Wilson, author of "The Diversity Of Life" and "On Human Nature", now explores the idea that there is an intrinsic orderliness that governs our cosmos. This concept was first arrived at in ancient Greece, and championed in the Age of Enlightenment, but was then lost as science and knowledge became increasingly fragmented. Wilson explains how relevent it still is today.

Synopsis:

Argues for the fundamental unity of all knowledge and the need to search for "consilience": the composition of the principles governing every branch of learning. The author shows how our rise in intellectual mastery is rooted in an ancient Greek concept at its zenith during the Enlightenment.
