Abstract:

E. O. Wilson offers descriptive and normative analyses of morality. Regarding sciencee as the only proper basis for explaining and developing morality, he has not sufficiently accounted for the complexity of human conduct in this arena. Wilson's account of evolved proclivities, however, indicates important features of human nature that moral theorists ignore at their peril.
