Harvard University Press is proud to announce the re-release of the complete original version ofSociobiology: The New Synthesis--now available in paperback for the first time. When this classic work was first published in 1975, it created a new discipline and started a tumultuous round in the age-old nature versus nurture debate. Although voted by officers and fellows of the international Animal Behavior Society the most important book on animal behavior of all time,Sociobiologyis probably more widely known as the object of bitter attacks by social scientists and other scholars who opposed its claim that human social behavior, indeed human nature, has a biological foundation. The controversy surrounding the publication of the book reverberates to the present day.
In the introduction to this Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Edition, Edward O. Wilson shows how research in human genetics and neuroscience has strengthened the case for a biological understanding of human nature. Human sociobiology, now often called evolutionary psychology, has in the last quarter of a century emerged as its own field of study, drawing on theory and data from both biology and the social sciences.
For its still fresh and beautifully illustrated descriptions of animal societies, and its importance as a crucial step forward in the understanding of human beings, this anniversary edition ofSociobiology: The New Synthesiswill be welcomed by a new generation of students and scholars in all branches of learning.It's been 25 years since E. O. Wilson wroteSociobiology, naming a new science and starting it off with a bang--and a firestorm of protest. Nurture! and Nature! came the cries from every corner of the academic world, as the book became acausus bellifor sociologists, feminists, human geneticists, and psychologists.This book enthrallslÉ.
