Biologist Wilson, considered to be one of the world's greatest living scientists, argues for the fundamental unity of all knowledge, that everything in our world is organized in terms of a small number of fundamental natural laws. Wilson, the pioneer of sociobiology and biodiversity, now once again breaks out of the conventions of current thinking. He shows how and why our explosive rise in intellectual mastery of the truths of our universe has its roots in the ancient Greek concept of an intrinsic orderliness that governs our cosmos--a vision that found its apogee in the Age of Enlightenment, then gradually was lost in the increasing fragmentation and specialization of knowledge in the last two centuries. Drawing on the physical sciences and biology, anthropology, psychology, religion, philosophy, and the arts, Professor Wilson shows why the goals of the original Enlightenment are reappearing on the frontiers of science and humanistic scholarship.--From publisher description.… (mehr)

E.O. Wilson makes a case for unifying sciences and humanities. If you are interested in the movement to Big History this book will be of interest. ( )

Wilson made his name in ants, as a rock star entomologist who made seminal contributions to the understanding of one of the most successful species of all time. It must not have been challenging enough for him, because this book is all about the unity of knowledge, where he tries to both explain why past attempts to bridge the divide between the arts and the sciences have failed (his verdict: they were based on "failed models of the brain"), and to chart out a new path for the synthesis of the human and nonhuman studies by basing them in the techniques of the natural sciences, which might be, to borrow from Churchill, "the worst way to study the world, except for all the others". As a science fan, I really enjoyed his clear-eyed appraisal of why science has been successful in doing what it does, but even a more poetically-inclined person will like his appreciation for the arts, his elegant writing, and his graceful and generous demeanor.

Quando si dice "Il piacere di leggere su "GoodReads": prendi un libro cartaceo dallo scaffale della libreria o biblioteca, lo sfogli, lo giri e lo rigiri tra le mani, scorri la presentazione, i capitoli, vedi l'indice, inizi la lettura, cerchi di sapere chi è l'autore, di cosa parla, quando è stato concepito, dove si colloca all'interno della tua cultura, vai alla ricerca del perchè è stato scritto. Lo tieni per parecchi giorni sul tuo comodino, te lo porti dietro leggendolo quando puoi, prendi qualche appunto, annoti qualche concetto che merita di essere approfondito, se ti riesce ne parli con qualcuno che ti può comprendere, certamente non al bar o in treno, nè tantomeno in qualche forum in rete. Ti accorgi che il libro mira a farti capire che tutto quello che pensi, la realtà che tu vivi, le discipline che tu credi di sapere, di conoscere e che credi di avere studiato, sono riconducibili soltanto ad una. Quando hai fatto questo percorso "cartaceo" per così dire, vai online, entri su "GoodReads" e lo cerchi. Scopri la sua presenza e inizi a leggere tutti i commenti che altri lettori hanno scritto negli anni. Scopri così che tutti hanno già scritto quello che tu credi aver pensato e di poter dire su di esso. Da una sola stellina a cinque stelle, il minimo e il massimo che si possa dare ad un libro che cerca di formalizzare la parola che dà il titolo al libro stesso: realizzare l'unità del sapere, unificare tutte le scienze: "consilience" appunto. Un sogno, una utopia, una realtà, una fantasia, una possibilità, una novità, una sfida, una ingenuità, una offesa? Tutto questo o niente di tutto questo. Indubbiamente questo libro è una provocazione che l'autore ha fatto a se stesso e a tutti i suoi lettori. Anche a chi non lo conosce e a chi non leggerà mai il suo libro. Per me merita le cnque stelle! ( )

This was an important book that I'm glad I read. The prose could have been cleaner, which would have made the dense content more accessible. ( )

Remarkably crappy. ( )

In his 1941 classic Man on His Nature, the British neurobiologist Charles Sherrington spoke of the brain as an enchanted loom, perpetually weaving a picture of the external world, tearing down and reweaving, inventing other worlds, creating a miniature universe. The communal mind of literate societies – world culture – is an immensely larger loom. (Chap. 2, “The Great Branches of Learning”)
[L]et us begin by simply walking away from Foucault and existential despair […] it's not so bad. Once we get over the shock of discovering that the universe was not made with us in mind [...] (Chap. 3, “The Enlightenment”)
Scientific theories, however, are fundamentally different. They are constructed specifically to be blown apart if proved wrong, and if so destined, the sooner the better. “Make your mistakes quickly” is a rule in the practice of science. I grant that scientist often fall in love with their own constructions. I know; I have. They may spend a lifetime trying to shore them up. A few squander their prestige and academic political capital in the effort. In that case – as the economist Paul Samuelson once quipped – funeral by funeral, theory advances. (Chap.4 “The Natural Sciences”)
Science, to be its warrant as concisely as possible, is the organized, systematic enterprise that gathers knowledge about the world and condenses the knowledge into testable laws and principles. (Chap.4 “The Natural Sciences”)
Someone has defined insanity as an inability to choose among false alternatives. In dreams we are insane. We wander across our limitless dreamscapes as madmen. (Chap.5 “Ariadne's Thread”)
