Searching for meaning in what Nietzsche once called "the rainbow colors" around the outeredges of knowledge and imagination, Edward O. Wilson bridges science and philosophyto create a twenty-first-century treatise on human existence. Once criticized for his over-relianceon genetics, Wilson unfurls here his most expansive and advanced theories on humanbehavior, recognizing that, even though the human and the spider evolved similarly, the poet'ssonnet is wholly different from the spider's web. Whether attempting to explicate "the Riddleof the Human Species," warning of "the Collapse of Biodiversity," or even creating a plausible"Portrait of E.T.," Wilson does indeed believe that humanity holds a special position in the knownuniverse. Alarmed, however, that we are about to abandon natural selection by redesigning biologyand human nature as we wish them, Wilson concludes that advances in science and technologybring us our greatest moral dilemma since God stayed the hand of Abraham.
