Our species is decisively social. Yet the form of our sociability fails to tell us, with certainty, either the degree of our interdependence or the necessity of our deep attachments. Other species are decisively social. Like us, the ants and bees, the social wasps and termites are able to move through life only in liasion with each other. The ants, as Lewis Thomas has noted, are embarrassingly like us. "They farm fungi, raise aphids as livestock, launch armies into wars, use chemical sprays to alarm or confuse their enemies, and capture slaves.
