E. O. Wilson on Wisdom

We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom.

In "Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge" (1998). E. O. Wilson (1929-) is an entomologist and biologist known for his work on ecology, evolution, and sociobiology. A two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction, Wilson is also known for his advocacy for environmentalism, and his secular-humanism ideas pertaining to religious and ethical matters.
