5 Reviews
Cientifico viajero y buen narrador, Wilson alterna la descripcion de diversos ambitos de la naturaleza con reflexiones sobre el origen comun de la ciencia y la poesia, para hablarnos de la organizacion de las hormigas, de la presencia de la serpiente en las ciencias y las humanidades, de la belleza del ave del paraiso o de la inteligencia de los cerdos. Todo esto en nombre del amor a la vida y a la naturaleza.
