Summary

Until recently, evolution and religion have been considered contending, irreconcilable theories of origin and existence. In this book, David Sloan Wilson takes the radical step of joining the two, but not in the usual fashion. The key, he argues, is to think of society as an organism--one in which morality and religion are adaptations that allow groups of humans to function as coherent wholes.
