About this book

Considers how the authors of three books, Genetics and the Origin of Species, What is Life?, and Consilience, pursued their aims of creating new academic disciplines. Drawing on their sympathetic understanding of both schools, Dobzhansky succeeded in persuading geneticists and naturalists, and Schroedinger physicists and biologists, that a joint project by equals would benefit everyone. The results are modern evolutionary and molecular biology. Wilson, on the other hand, failed to convince even many scientists that a conquest by science of the humanities was desirable or possible.
