Profiles soft-spoken Southerner E.O. Wilson, a naturalist renowned for his scientific study of ants that led to his 1975 book Sociobiology : the new synthesis, where he put forth the notion that evolutionary principles could explain social behavior throughout the animal kingdom, including in humans. Shows the evolution of sociobiology from a controversial new discipline to one supported by experimental science that has shown that genes do play a role in aspects of human behavior. Examines Wilson's work as a writer and winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, as well as his efforts for conservation around the world.
