CONVERSATION WITH | DAVID SLOAN WILSON
The Origin of Religions, From a Distinctly Darwinian
I'm in agreement with Wilson on religion. Although I'm an atheist,
I'm a 'nice atheist' and don't regard religion as parasitic. I'll have to
take a look at this book.
By way of connection, Wilson wrote a highly critical review of 'The Meme
Machine' that appeared in Science in July of 1999. Lee Alan
Dugatkin, whose 'Imitation Factor' concerning cultural inheritance in
animals received some attention on this list last year, earned his PhD
studying under Wilson. From what I can gather, Dr. Wilson is well
regarded within the field of evolutionary biology.
