3/1/07: EO Wilson

Biologist, Theorist and Naturalist Edward O. Wilson
Biologist, Theorist and Naturalist Edward O. Wilson

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The biologist EO Wilson has been described as "one of the 20th century's greatest thinkers" and "Darwin's natural heir." Wilson himself often says he just never outgrew "the bug phase" that most children go through. The Harvard Professor Emeritus believes in the truth of nature and science, and that this truth holds the key to improving the human condition. EO Wilson is in Salt Lake City, and joins Doug in studio to talk about saving nature - and in turn ourselves.

EO Wilson has been in Salt Lake City as a guest of the Utah Museum of Natural History and the Nature Conservancy. He spoke as part of their Nature of Things lecture series, which continues through June. For a schedule of upcoming events, visit them on-line.
