Book Title: Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge

Author: E.O. Wilson

Book Description:

Consilience is a term that embraces diversity and interdisciplinarity. Penned by renowned entomologist, naturalist, and humanist E.O. Wilson, this timely and thought-provoking book attempts to break down barriers that have separated many fields of study over the past two hundred years or so. As someone whose work involves translations between art and science, I found this book to be a welcome validation of my work, as well as an insightful summary of the wisdom to be found in diverse approaches to learning.
