A meeting of great minds at the intersection of the arts and sciences

"Enchanting. . . . The Poetic Species is a wonderful read in its entirety, short yet infinitely simulating." --Maria Popova, Marginalian

In this shimmering conversation, Edward O. Wilson, renowned scientist and proponent of "consilience" or the unity of knowledge, finds an ardent interlocutor in Robert Hass, whose credo as United States poet laureate was "imagination makes communities." As they explore the many ways that poetry and science enhance each other, they travel from anthills to ancient Egypt and to the heights and depths of human potential.A testament to how science and the arts can join forces to educate and inspire, this book is also a passionate plea for conservation of all the planet's species.
