|David Sloan Wilson is Distinguished Professor of Biology with a joint appointment in Anthropology at Binghamton University. He is best known for championing the theory of multilevel selection, which shows how adaptations can evolve at all levels of the biological hierarchy, with implications ranging from the origin of life to the nature of religion. He is author of nearly 200 scientific articles published in biology, anthropology, psychology, and philosophy journals. His academic books include The Natural Selection of Populations and Communities (1980), Unto Others: The Evolution and Psychology of Unselfish Behavior (with Elliott Sober; 1998), Darwin's Cathedral: Evolution, Religion, and the Nature of Society (2002), and the The Literary Animal: Evolution and the Nature of Narrative (co-edited with Jonathan Gottschall, 2005). His first book for a general audience, Evolution for Everyone: How Darwin's Theory Can Change the Way We Think About Our Lives (Delacorte, 2007), which Natalie Angier described as "a minor miracle, the near complete emulsifying of science and the real world." His next book will be published by Little, Brown and is titled Evolving the City: An Evolutionist Contemplates Changing the World—One City at a Time. In addition to his own research and writing, Dr. Wilson is director of EvoS, a campus-wide program that strives to use evolutionary theory as a common language to create a single intellectual community, spanning all human related subjects in addition to the natural world.
