DivorcedStatesInkDadMeWillsonE.O. Wilson, the author of the classical biological text “Sociobiology” taught in my dad’s department at Harvard for most of their mutual careers. Wilson’s mix of conservative politics and biological determinism became a classic case for the critique of science in the women’s movement.  When I eventually went to college, I took a few classes about feminist theory and I learned about this debate. My dad and I rehashed the argument over the dinner table during my spring breaks.
