Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"This book is a comprehensive effort to establish a framework for consilience - the unification of the natural and social sciences. Grounded in physics, molecular biology, and evolutionary neuroscience, this volume seeks to identify and trace the organic brain algorithms which, when replicated in our neural architecture, shape our human thought, behavior, and language. Drawing on the work of Edward O. Wilson, Paul  Read more...
