David Sloan Wilson is Distinguished Professor of Biology and Anthropology at Binghamton University in New York and author of Unto Others, Darwin’s Cathedral, and most recently Evolution for Everyone. I confess that I have not yet read the book, though it is near the top of my pile. (Dr. Wilson and I are on the editorial board of Evolution: Education and Outreach, and he was kind enough to have copies sent to all of us).
On Saturday I happened to be listening to the radio and caught an interview with Dr. Wilson on CBC’s Quirks and Quarks program. You can listen here to a discussion of the book and his ideas about evolution, morality, religion, and other subjects. (Another connection: the host, Bob McDonald, received an honourary Doctor of Letters degree from the University of Guelph at the same convocation at which I received my degree).
