He began as an ant taxonomist and worked on understanding their evolution, how they developed into new species by escaping environmental disadvantages and moving into new habitats. He developed a theory of the " taxon cycle". Altmann on the social behavior of rhesus macaques, which gave Wilson a first impetus to imagine sociobiology as a global theory of animal social behavior. He collaborated with mathematician William Bossert, and discovered the chemical nature of ant communication, via pheromones. In the s he collaborated with mathematician and ecologist Robert MacArthur.
Together, they tested the theory of species equilibrium on a tiny island in the Florida Keys. He eradicated all insect species and observed the re-population by new species. A book The Theory of Island Biogeography about this experiment became a standard ecology text. In , he published the book The Insect Societies about the biology of social insects like ants, bees, wasps and termites. In , he published the book Sociobiology: The New Synthesis applying his theories of insect behavior to vertebrates, and in the last chapter, humans.

He speculated that evolved and inherited tendencies were responsible for hierarchical social organisation among humans. In he published On Human Nature , which dealt with the role of biology in the evolution of human culture and won a Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction. In after collaborating with Charles Lumsden, he published Genes, Mind and Culture , a theory of gene-culture coevolution. In the s, he published The Diversity of Life , an autobiography: Naturalist , and Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge about the unity of the natural and social sciences.
In , Wilson officially retired from Harvard University , where he continues to hold the positions of Professor Emeritus and Honorary Curator in Entomology. He founded the E. Wilson became a special lecturer at Duke University as part of the agreement. Wilson has published the following books during the 21st century :. Wilson and his wife, Irene, reside in Lexington, Massachusetts. His daughter, Catherine, and her husband, Jonathan, reside in nearby Stow, Massachusetts. Wilson used sociobiology and evolutionary principles to explain the behavior of social insects and then to understand the social behavior of other animals, including humans, thus established sociobiology as a new scientific field.

He argued that all animal behavior, including that of humans, is the product of heredity , environmental stimuli, and past experiences, and that free will is an illusion. He has referred to the biological basis of behaviour as the "genetic leash". This theory and research proved to be seminal, controversial, and influential. Wilson has argued that the unit of selection is a gene, the basic element of heredity.
The target of selection is normally the individual who carries an ensemble of genes of certain kinds. With regard to the use of kin selection in explaining the behavior of eusocial insects , the "new view that I'm proposing is that it was group selection all along, an idea first roughly formulated by Darwin. Sociobiological research was at the time particularly controversial with regard to its application to humans.
There are, Wilson suggests in the chapter, limits on just how much influence social and environmental factors can have in altering human behavior. Sociobiology was initially met with substantial criticism. Several of Wilson's colleagues at Harvard,  such as Richard Lewontin and Stephen Jay Gould , were strongly opposed to his ideas regarding sociobiology.
Gould, Lewontin, and others from the Sociobiology Study Group from the Boston area wrote "Against 'Sociobiology'" in an open letter criticizing Wilson's "deterministic view of human society and human action". I believe that he was There was also political opposition.
Sociobiology re-ignited the nature and nurture debate. Wilson was accused of racism , misogyny , and sympathy to eugenics. I was the only scientist in modern times to be physically attacked for an idea. Objections from evangelical Christians included those of Paul E. Rothrock in " Midgley praised the book for the study of animal behavior, clarity, scholarship, and encyclopedic scope, but extensively critiqued Wilson for conceptual confusion, scientism, and anthropomorphism of genetics.
Wilson wrote in his book On Human Nature , "The evolutionary epic is probably the best myth we will ever have. Wilson has said in reference to ants " Karl Marx was right, socialism works, it is just that he had the wrong species". Humans, however, do possess reproductive independence so they can give birth to offspring without the need of a "queen", and in fact humans enjoy their maximum level of Darwinian fitness only when they look after themselves and their offspring, while finding innovative ways to use the societies they live in for their own benefit.
In his book Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge , Wilson discussed methods that have been used to unite the sciences, and might be able to unite the sciences with the humanities. Wilson used the term " consilience " to describe the synthesis of knowledge from different specialized fields of human endeavor. He defined human nature as a collection of epigenetic rules, the genetic patterns of mental development. He argued that culture and rituals are products, not parts, of human nature.
He said art is not part of human nature, but our appreciation of art is. He suggested that concepts such as art appreciation, fear of snakes, or the incest taboo Westermarck effect could be studied by scientific methods of the natural sciences and be part of interdisciplinary research. Wilson coined the phrase scientific humanism as "the only worldview compatible with science's growing knowledge of the real world and the laws of nature". In , he was one of the signers of the Humanist Manifesto.
On the question of God , Wilson has described his position as provisional deism  and explicitly denied the label of " atheist ", preferring " agnostic ". In his book The Creation , Wilson suggests that scientists ought to "offer the hand of friendship" to religious leaders and build an alliance with them, stating that "Science and religion are two of the most potent forces on Earth and they should come together to save the creation.
Wilson made an appeal to the religious community on the lecture circuit at Midland College, Texas, for example, and that "the appeal received a 'massive reply'", that a covenant had been written and that a "partnership will work to a substantial degree as time goes on". In a New Scientist interview published on 21 January , Wilson said that "Religion 'is dragging us down' and must be eliminated 'for the sake of human progress ' ", and "So I would say that for the sake of human progress, the best thing we could possibly do would be to diminish, to the point of eliminating, religious faiths.
Wilson has said that, if he could start his life over he would work in microbial ecology , when discussing the reinvigoration of his original fields of study since the s. Now when you cut a forest, an ancient forest in particular, you are not just removing a lot of big trees and a few birds fluttering around in the canopy.
You are drastically imperiling a vast array of species within a few square miles of you. The number of these species may go to tens of thousands. Many of them are still unknown to science, and science has not yet discovered the key role undoubtedly played in the maintenance of that ecosystem , as in the case of fungi , microorganisms , and many of the insects.
Understanding the scale of the extinction crisis has led him to advocate for forest protection,  including the "Act to Save America's Forests", first introduced in , until , but never passed. Wilson's scientific and conservation honors include:.
