268 pages, no illustrations
One of the great intellectual battles of modern times is between evolution and religion. Until now, they have been considered completely irreconcilable theories of origin and existence. Wilson's volume takes the radical step of joining the two, in the process proposing an evolutionary theory of religion that shakes both evolutionary biology and social theory at their foundations.
Darwin's Cathedral is a masterpiece of clear thinking and even clearer writing. It is such a joy to read an important original contribution to science such as Wilson makes here, that can be read and valued by both professional and general readers. Darwin's Cathedral will go down as one of the classic treatises on the study of religion, alongside those produced by William James, Emile Durkheim, and Sigmund Freud, only Wilson's thesis has the added advantage of being scientifically testable. - Michael Shermer, author of How We Believe, Editor-in-Chief of Skeptic magazine, columnist for Scientific American
