E.O. Wilson's Newest

Something always worth celebrating is the publication of a new book by E.O. Wilson.  His latest is "The Creation: An Appeal to Save Life on Earth."  Its theme is conservation, and Wilson attempts to bridge the divide between science and religion by finding common cause in our shared existence.  Wilson writes, "Let us see, then, if we can, and you are willing, to meet on the near side of metaphysics in order to deal with the real world we share."   Wilson is an extraordinarily graceful and elegant writer of science.  From today's N.Y. Times: "'The Creation' is the wise and lovely work of a truly learned man, filled with a spirit that readers of every stripe will recognize as reverence."  (See full review here.)
