Here, the legendary biologist Edward O. Wilson offers his most philosophically probing work to date. 'Creativity is the unique and defining trait of our species; and its ultimate goal, self-understanding', begins Edward Wilson's sweeping examination of the humanities and their relationship to the sciences. By studying fields as diverse as paleontology, evolutionary biology and neuroscience, Wilson demonstrates that human creativity began not 10,000 years ago, as we have long assumed, but over 100,000 years ago in the Paleolithic Age.
