      Could anyone tell me the name of the hymn/anthem sung at both Darwin’s and Hamilton’s funerals? Is there a recording? Its a beautiful piece of music. Thanks.

      It comes from Proverbs 3:13 Happy in the man who findeth wisdom.

      It is “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom”.

  1. If you don’t know much about Hamilton and the history of altruism I recommend the book The Price of Altruism: George Price and the Search for the Origins of Kindness by Oran Harman. Its more about Price but Hamilton is mentioned quite a bit as well and they were both fascinating people. Its a nice intro for people like me who don’t know much about the history of biology and are interested in the concepts as well as the people who created them.
