← The Descent of Edward Wilson (with Polish translation)

I am not enough of a scientist to follow all the arguments in this thread so far, but one importants point strikes me:

If you read the complete review, you will find a whole bunch of direct replies attacking Dawkins and his views. Once again, I don't know enough to follow all the arguments, but in the present thread none of us seem to be addressing those often contemptuous dismissals of Dawkins and his allegedly mistaken emphasis on the gene. Dawkins describes Wilson as being in a minority; those replies seem to say it's Dawkins who is out of step. My gut feeling is that Dawkins is right, but like Sagan I don't want to think with my gut. Help me out, folks!
