This book by E.O.Wilson came out this month (6 Oct 2014)
http://www.amazon.com/Meaning-Human-Exi ... 871401002/

The Amazon page has the "look inside" feature that allows some browsing.

Judging from the Table of Contents, and the book's Instroduction, he looks at human existence in a broad panoramic context (blend of philosophy and science) both in terms of what we have learned about the evolution of social species with complex communication, and in terms of other life and societies we may discover in the future.

Just happened to buy this buy this morning before joining this forum. Got it from Amazon, should arrive by Saturday. Looking forward to reading it. Already have his The Social Conquest of Earth (2013). A really brilliant scientist.
