First edition of this profound and lyrical book, Wilson offers a sweeping examination of the relationship between the humanities and the sciences. Octavo, original boards, illustrated.

An eloquent exploration of creativity, The Origins of Creativity grapples with the question of how this uniquely human expression―so central to our identity as individuals and, collectively, as a species―came about and how it has manifested itself throughout the history of our species. “With his trademark boundless intellect and elegant writing, Wilson argues that we need both the sciences and the humanities in order to understand the deep origins of what makes us human" (Alan Lightman).
