Sociobiology by Edward O. Wilson

"Sociobiology" is a comprehensive and scholarly work that explores the biological basis of social behavior in all species, including humans. The author weaves together findings from various fields such as ethology, anthropology, evolution, and genetics to propose a new discipline - sociobiology. He suggests that social behavior, including altruism, aggression, and nurturance, is not just a product of learning and environment, but also has a genetic basis. This work sparked considerable debate and controversy, particularly regarding its implications for human behavior and society.
