Chronicling the evolution of creativity from primates to humans, Wilson shows how the humanities, in large part, spurred on by the invention of language, have played a previously unexamined role in defining our species. Exploring a surprising range of creative endeavors - the instinct to create gardens, the use of metaphors and irony in speech, the power of music and song- Wilson proposes a transformational "Third Enlightenment" in which the blending of science and humanities will enable a deeper understanding of the human condition and how it ultimately originated.

Origines of creativity
I did not find this book very interesting and I did not agree with the idea that the termites who built structures with air conditioning tubes were not creative. There wasn't any new information presented nor new paradigms proposed.
