Incoherent, overreaching.

Not exactly what I was expecting, but thought-provoking nonetheless. Wilson provides an interesting take on the science vs. art debate, and makes a convincing case for science and art. Indeed, the two are inextricably linked by evolution.

This quick read deftly lays out the biological antecedents of humanity's creative capacity, and why we tell the stories we tell.
