About this book

An accessible account of the knowledge that modern science provides, and its consequences.
`The Splendid Feast of Reason is the testament of that rarest of breeds, an honest man, at once fearless and modest and decent, presenting scientific rationalism at its best. Singer's superb humanistic summary of modern biology alone is worth the price.' E O Wilson

The Splendid Feast of Reason is the testament of that rarest of breeds, an honest man, at once fearless and modest and decent, presenting scientific rationalism at its best. Singer's superb humanistic summary of modern biology alone is worth the price. - Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor, Harvard University"
