Solving Problems through ConsilienceWill consilience the unity of all knowledge really solve all of our worldly problems and mysteries Edward O Wilson believes it will I disagree with him though for numerous reasons Wilson thinks that combining the two cultures the sciences and the humanities will answer all of our questions about the unknown One of the reasons I disagree with Wilson is because if you combined the two cultures you would get a kind of gray area where differences of opinions clashed It may work out to a certain degree but somewhere along the line someone is going to have a different opinion C P Snow explained in his book The Two Cultures that even though the scientists and the literary persons were very much alike they often thought each others theories to be wrong What is going to happen if we get to the advanced stages of an experiment and the whole thing fails because of a small difference in opinionAnother reason consilience can be harmful to our society is because Wilson talks about solving all of our problems through consilience Solving these problems will only create more problems in the future Wilson hasnt taken the time to think about problems that may arise with our newfound wisdom Problems as small as finding jobs for all the scientists we dont need anymore because there is no more research to be done and as large as human morals and values conflicting with scientists experiments It has been brought up that consilience will help us to break down what the human body is actually made of and what it is about thus allowing us to create a pseudo human Being able to actually manufacture people is a rather scary thought If we could make the perfect human where would that put the not so perfect people in our societyFor some purposes I can see where consilience is a very good thing Wilson gives
