Paleontologist, author Gould dies at 60
Stephen J. Gould. (Staff photo by Jon Chase) Gould, the Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology, spent his professional career at Harvard. He wrote widely on topics ranging from baseball to the Piltdown Man hoax to the Sept. 11 tragedy. He appeared on the cover of Newsweek in 1982, and colleagues called him "the bulldog of evolutionary biology" for his outspoken advocacy of his views. "I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Stephen Jay Gould," said Harvard University President Lawrence H. Summers. "The Harvard community and the world of science have lost a brilliant scholar whose research helped redefine our notion of who we are and where we came from. He was also a gifted teacher who brought important scientific ideas vividly to life for his students and for the wider public. We will miss him greatly, and we will continue to learn from his work for generations to come." "Secondly, he was the best science writer for the public when it came to explaining evolution. Steve did not try to make it simple, he tried and succeeded in explaining the complications. He made readers appreciate how messy and variable life is. Rather than being a popularizer of science, Steve always told the truth in ways people could understand, and he did it better than anyone," Lewontin added.

Ontogeny and Phylogeny
Stephen Jay Gould
Harvard University Press 1977 Amazon A book review by Danny Yee Stephen Jay Gould is best known for his collections of essays. Ontogeny and Phylogeny is a rather different kind of book (it has more in common with Time's Arrow, Time's Cycle than the essays), but it still has the characteristic Gould feel to it. Many will disagree, but I feel that it is in fact the best of all Gould's books. It will certainly be compulsive reading for anyone interested in development or evolution which is pretty much anyone interested in biology. The idea that the development of individuals is a progression through adult ancestral forms, epitomised in the saying "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny", has played an important part in the history of biology. Since the rejection of recapitulationist ideas in the early part of this century, however, the study of links between development and evolution has been relatively neglected. Ontogeny and Phylogeny is divided into two roughly equal sections. The first is an outline of the history of the idea of recapitulation and the second presents the author's own ideas on the relationship between evolution and development.

Stephen Jay Gould Dates::
Born: September 10, 1941
Died: May 20, 2002 (cancer) Biography:
Stephen Jay Gould (1941-2002) was one of the best known and most popular writers both on general science matters and, specifically, on his own field of evolutionary biology. He wrote an unprecedented 300 consecutive monthly columns (This View of Life) for Natural History magazine along with 20 best-selling books and nearly one thousand scientific papers. From 1967 until his death he taught at Harvard University, eventually becoming Professor of Geology and Curator of Inverterbrate Paleontology, Museum of Comparative Zoology. Along with paleontologist Niles Eldredge, he developed the concept of "punctuated equilibrium" to explain an oddity of the fossil record: apparent "bursts" of speciation in between long periods of little or no change. According to Eldredge and Gould, environmental stresses would frequently be low enough that there would not be any reason for evolutionary changes - but, when dramatic environmental shifts occurred, evolutionary change can and does happen quite rapidly (relatively speaking - even "rapid" changes take place over tens of thousands of years).

Public face of evolution dies of cancer aged 60.
21 May 2002 JOHN WHITFIELD Stephen Jay Gould: 1941 - 2002. Stephen Jay Gould, one of the world's most famous evolutionary biologists, died of cancer yesterday aged 60. Gould's accessible and entertaining writing made him the public face of evolution, while his provocative ideas stirred up academic debate. Gould's powers as a popularizer made him famous beyond science. In 1982 he appeared on the cover of Newsweek . And in 1997 he attained the ultimate mark of contemporary celebrity - a cameo on The Simpsons Gould authored more than 20 books. Nine are collections of essays, culled from the monthly column in Natural History magazine that he wrote for 25 years. These essays centered on evolution, but often used examples from art, history and baseball - a lifelong passion. His longer works include the award-winning Wonderful Life , on the fossils of the Burgess Shale, and The Mismeasure of Man , a critique of intelligence testing.

46. Misbehavior
Misbehavior How stephen jay gould is wrong about evolution. John Alcock. 3 stephen jay gould, Only His Wings Remained, Natural History 93 (1984) 1018.
How Stephen Jay Gould is wrong about evolution. John Alcock Stephen Jay Gould is arguably the most widely read biologist in America and our unofficial "evolutionist laureate," according to the editors of Natural History In reality, however, many evolutionists believe that Gould has exercised his considerable skills as an essayist to misinform the public about research in evolutionary biology. At regular intervals over 25 years, Gould has used Natural History as a forum for attacking human sociobiology, and, more broadly, the adaptationist or selectionist approach in evolutionary biology, because that methodology is the foundation for sociobiological investigation. Although Gould’s polemical attacks have earned him public support as an "articulate (and rightly feared) enemy of sociobiological and hereditarian excesses," His pronouncements on the adaptationist approach have been dissected and dismissed by a host of leading evolutionists. But because Gould is so hostile to human sociobiology, he has continued to try to undercut the selectionist philosophy that underlies that field by criticizing its application no matter what species is under study. For example, in "Only His Wings Remained," he launches a sweeping critique of adaptationist hypotheses in general:

    stephen jay gould teaches biology, geology and the history of science at Harvard University, where he has been on the faculty since 1967.
    The history of life is not necessarily progressive; it is certainly not predictable. The earth's creatures have evolved through a series of contingent and fortuitous events.
    STEPHEN JAY GOULD teaches biology, geology and the history of science at Harvard University, where he has been on the faculty since 1967. He received an A.B. from Antioch College and a PhD. in paleontology from Columbia University. Well known for his popular scientific writings, in particular his monthly column in Natural History magazine, he is the author of 13 books. Some creators announce their inventions with grand éclat. God proclaimed, "Fiat lux," and then flooded his new universe with brightness. Others bring forth great discoveries in a modest guise, as did Charles Darwin in defining his new mechanism of evolutionary causality in 1859: "I have called this principle, by which each slight variation, if useful, is preserved, by the term Natural Selection." Natural selection is an immensely powerful yet beautifully simple theory that has held up remarkably well, under intense and unrelenting scrutiny and testing, for 135 years. In essence, natural selection locates the mechanism of evolutionary change in a "struggle" among organisms for reproductive success, leading to improved fit of populations to changing environments. ( Struggle is often a metaphorical description and need not be viewed as overt combat, guns blazing. Tactics for reproductive success include a variety of non-martial activities such as earlier and more frequent mating or better cooperation with partners in raising offspring.) Natural selection is therefore a principle of local adaptation, not of general advance or progress.

    The Survival Of The Fittest - Stephen Jay Gould In London
    Robyn Williams: Have you noticed that nearly everything in life is becoming commercial? A few years ago, when I gave the Alfred Deakin Lecture in Melbourne, the annual showcase lecture for the Liberal Party, I chose as a theme the privatisation of everything. I suggested that they consider sponsorship for Cabinet positions and proposed, for instance, the McDonald's Minister of Education, the Tampax Treasurer, and the Murdoch Minister of Arts and Communications. Gradually, we see here and abroad, these ideas are being taken up. Not least in science. Whereas once we had professors standing before appreciative crowds, giving talks for the public good, nowadays we have packaging, promotion, spin-offs, tie-ins and who knows? even T-shirts to augment the erudite oration. Where will it end? Learned institutions can no longer afford to put on the unembellished occasion; and if you can make a quid, why not go in for it? Well today, a personal reflection on all that from Professor Jane Goodall. She's just been to see one of the toreadors of palaeontology, and both he and she reacted rather adversely to the product and corporate manifestations, as you'll hear. Jane Goodall lectures at the University of Western Sydney, Hawkesbury.

Gould addressed these and other aspects of evolutionary thought in his magnum opus, The Structure of Evolutionary Theory (2002). He began his lifelong teaching career at Harvard in 1967 and wrote many other books, including Ontogeny and Phylogeny The Mismeasure of Man Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History (1989), and the posthumously published The Hedgehog, the Fox, and the Magister's Pox (2003), as well as essay collections drawn from his popular articles in Natural History magazine. Gould was also an avid baseball fan; his Triumph and Tragedy in Mudville, an essay collection, was also published posthumously in 2003.

    The New Yorker, November 28, 1994 BY stephen jay gould THE BELL CURVE, by Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray (Free Press; $30), subtitled Intelligence
    The New Yorker, November 28, 1994
    So, when a book garners as much attention as "The Bell Curve," we wish to know the causes. One might suspect the content itself startlingly new idea, or an old suspicion newly verified by persuasive data but the reason might also be social acceptability, or even just plain hype. "The Bell Curve," with its claims and supposed documentation that race and class differences are largely caused by genetic factors and are therefore essentially immutable, contains no new arguments and presents no compelling data to support its anachronistic social t Darwinism, so I can only conclude that its success in winning attention must reflect the depressing temper of our time a historical moment of unprecedented ungenerosity, when a mood for slashing social programs can be power-fully abetted by an argument that beneficiaries cannot be helped, owing to inborn cognitive limits expressed as low I.Q. scores.
    Disturbing as I find the anachronism of "The Bell Curve," I am even more distressed by its pervasive disingenuousness. The authors omit facts, misuse statistical methods, and seem unwilling to admit the consequences of their own words.

    November 1981 American paleontologist, is an evolutionary theorist and a writer of popular works on natural history and the role of science in society. Obtaining his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1967, Gould joined and has remained on the staff of Harvard University. With others, he has advanced the debated concept that major evolutionary changes take place in sudden bursts. Among his award-winning books are The Panda's Thumb (1980) and The Mismeasure of Man Wonderful Life (1989) documents the 1909 discovery of the Burgess Shale fossils, how they were misinterpreted, and how a reexamination in the 1970s resulted in a new classification.

    Harvard paleontologist, well known for his prolific popular writings and his formulation with Niles Eldridge of the theory of punctuated equilibrium , who considered how evolutionary theory impacts on the likelihood and possible nature of extraterrestrial intelligence (see evolutionary theory and extraterrestrial life ). In his 1989 book Wonderful Life he argues against the repeatability of species and of humanoids in particular (see anthropomorphism ), pointing out the . . . staggeringly improbable series of events, sensible enough in retrospect and subject to rigorous explanation, but utterly unpredictable and quite unrepeatable. . . . Wind back the tape of life to the early days of the Burgess shale; let it play again from an identical starting point, and the chance becomes vanishingly small that anything like human intelligence would grace the replay. At the same time, he is quick to assert that while the contingency inherent in evolution suggests a lack of human-like beings elsewhere, it does not, as some evolutionists such as George Gaylord

    Stephen Jay Gould, one of the world's best-known palaeontologists and science writers, has died at the age of 60. He died of cancer at his home in New York, according to his assistant Stephanie Schur. A Harvard professor since the age of 26, Gould was also a best-selling author known for his engaging and often witty style of science writing.
    Science is not a heartless pursuit of objective information. It is a creative human activity, its geniuses acting more as artists than as information processors
    Stephen Jay Gould He sought to make complex debates about geology, palaeontology and evolutionary biology accessible to the general public. Some of his best-known works are Ever Since Darwin, The Panda's Thumb and The Mismeasure Of Man. He also championed the teaching of evolutionary science in American schools, despite opposition from creationist lobby groups.
