E.O. Wilson’s Life and Legacy with Biographer Richard Rhodes

“Biophilia is the connection that human beings innately seek with the natural world.” - E.O. Wilson

This week on Biophilic Solutions, Monica and Jennifer speak with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Rhodes about his latest work, Scientist: E.O. Wilson: A Life in Nature. Recorded in early December, a few weeks before Wilson passed away at the age of 92, this interview delves into Wilson’s extraordinary life and contributions to the field of biology, Richard’s interest in him as a subject, and the important role that science plays in society. We also explore Wilson’s conception of biophilia and Richard’s own relationship with the natural world.
