    Edward O. Wison, Professor Emeritus at Harvard, has dedicated much of his 60 years in biology to the study of social insects. In his latest book, The Social Conquest of Earth, he turns his focus to another successful organism—humans—and addresses three fundamental questions of religion and philosophy: who are we, where we are going, and from where did we come? Wilson addresses many fields—mathematics, human genetics, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and evolutionary biology—to explain the origin of humans and our domination of the Earth’s biosphere. Booksigning and reception to follow.
