Asserting that religious creeds and philosophical questions can be reduced to purely genetic and evolutionary components, and that the human body and mind have a physical base obedient to the laws of physics and chemistry, Genesis demonstrates that the only way for us to fully understand human behaviour is to study the evolutionary histories of non-human species. Of these, Wilson demonstrates that at least seventeen have advanced societies based on altruism and cooperation.  Genesis is a pithy yet pathbreaking work of evolutionary theory.
