Cytaty Edward Osborne Wilson

„Człowiek wciąż ma emocje na poziomie epoki kamienia łupanego, instytucje ze średniowiecza, a technikę o boskich możliwościach.“

„Wonderful theory, wrong species.“

— Edward O. Wilson
Context: Wonderful theory, wrong species. (On Marxism, which he considered more suited to ants than to humans.) [http://arts.independent.co.uk/books/news/article2886394.ece].

„True character arises from a deeper well than religion.“

— Edward O. Wilson
Context: True character arises from a deeper well than religion. It is the internalization of moral principles of a society, augmented by those tenets personally chosen by the individual, strong enough to endure through trials of solitude and adversity. The principles are fitted together into what we call integrity, literally the integrated self, wherein personal decisions feel good and true. Character is in turn the enduring source of virtue. It stands by itself and excites admiration in others. It is not obedience to authority, and while it is often consistent with and reinforced by religious belief, it is not piety.

„Few will doubt that humankind has created a planet-sized problem for itself. No one wished it so, but we are the first species to become a geophysical force, altering Earth's climate, a role previously reserved for tectonics, sun flares, and glacial cycles.“

— Edward O. Wilson
Context: Few will doubt that humankind has created a planet-sized problem for itself. No one wished it so, but we are the first species to become a geophysical force, altering Earth's climate, a role previously reserved for tectonics, sun flares, and glacial cycles. We are also the greatest destroyer of life since the ten-kilometer-wide meteorite that landed near Yucatan and ended the Age of Reptiles sixty-five million years ago. Through overpopulation we have put ourselves in danger of running out of food and water. So a very Faustian choice is upon us: whether to accept our corrosive and risky behavior as the unavoidable price of population and economic growth, or to take stock of ourselves and search for a new environmental ethic. p. 277-278.
