Interview with E. O. Wilson

While I have little truck with some of his odder notion--sociobiology--I have read and enjoyed his works on species of ants.  The meticulous detail with which he describes and delineates the species is a wonder to behold because it is accessible to those who have little training in the specialty of entomology (though it would prove a trial to those with little or no background in science.)  And now to the point--here's an interview with E. O. Wilson--a great scientist and an interesting man.  He's talking about a new novel--a prospect that causes one to shiver when one considers the fiction of work of some of his compatriots in Science--but which will nevertheless be informed by a keen intellect, a sharp observer.  It may turn out to be a fine novel.
