tephen Jay Gould (1941-2002) was among the best known and widely read scientists of the late 20th century. A paleontologist and educator at Harvard University, Gould made his largest contributions to science as the leading spokes-person for evolutionary theory. His monthly columns in Natural History magazine and his popular works on evolution have earned him numerous awards For more than 30 years Gould served on the faculty at Harvard, where he was Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology, Professor of Geology, Biology, and the History of Science, as well as curator for Invertebrate Paleontology at the institution's Museum of Comparative Zoology. On this website you will find articles by Gould and his colleagues focusing on the finer points of his work, the nature of life's evolution, and the general ontogeny of evolutionary theory.

7. Salon: Stephen Jay Gould
An interview with Gould from s archives.
"Staggering our certainties" about humanity's place at the top of the heap By SCOTT ROSENBERG In the popular mind, Darwin's great discovery was that apes were our ancestors. To Stephen Jay Gould, that's not the half of it. The Darwinian ideas that people really have a hard time embracing, he maintains, are the implications of natural selection a theory that explains the development of Homo sapiens without reference to any sort of divine plan or vision of progress. Woven through much of Gould's writing, and at the heart of his new "Full House," is an insistent demand that we "cash out" the deepest implications of Darwin's insights and begin to comprehend that our species, far from being the pinnacle of some inevitable trend in nature toward greater complexity, is simply a tiny accident occurring on a minor side-branch of the evolutionary tree. In his 1991 "Wonderful Life," which is a sort of companion to "Full House," Gould used the example of the Cambrian explosion of species found in the fossils of the Burgess Shale to demonstrate that "contingency" accident, happenstance, the particular way that events unfold plays a central role in determining the fate of species. Rewind the tape of events to play evolution out once more, Gould argues, and the odds are against anything like Homo sapiens developing. We're here because we're here not because we had to be here.

8. Gould: The Evolution Of Life On The Earth
By Stephen Jay Gould
October, 1994.
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.

American paleontologist and university professor of geology at Harvard, the author of hundreds of science papers, book reviews and magazine articles. His work includes two collections of essays, "Ever Since Darwin," 1977, "The Panda’s Thumb," 1980 and "The Mismeasure of Man," a study of intelligence testing which won the National Book Critics Award. Gould rocked the science world with his revolutionary ideas about evolution. Gould’s father, who worked as a court stenographer in the Queens County Supreme Court, was a Marxist and amateur naturalist. Young Gould’s first ambition was to become a garbage collector, but at age five he accompanied his father to the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan where he saw a reconstruction of a dinosaur. As they left the Museum, he announced he wanted to be a paleontologist. (Presumably he was precocious, this not being a word in the vocabulary of most five-year-olds.) After high school, Gould spent the summer at the University of Colorado, then enrolled in Antioch College where he received his B.A. degree in 1963. He then enrolled in Columbia University for his doctoral dissertation, choosing to investigate fossil land snails of Bermuda. In 1966, he returned to Antioch to teach geology, then became assistant professor of geology at Harvard the following year, and advanced to associate professor in 1971. He was a full professor by 1973, and became curator of invertebrate paleontology at Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology.

Stephen Jay Gould Stephen Jay Gould (September 10, 1941 – May 20, 2002) was an American paleontologist evolutionary biologist , and historian of science. He was also one of the most influential and widely read writers of popular science of his generation. He spent most of his career teaching at Harvard University and writing for Natural History, a publication of the American Museum of Natural History. Early in his career, Gould developed with Niles Eldredge the theory of punctuated equilibrium, in which evolutionary change occurs relatively rapidly in comparison to much longer periods of evolutionary stability (stasis). According to Gould, punctuated equilibrium revised a key pillar of neo-Darwinism , that evolutionary change is "slow, steady, gradual and continuous." Initially confronting significant opposition, the theory became accepted as part of evolutionary theory. Some evolutionary biologists have argued that while the theory was an important insight, in reality it merely modified neo-Darwinism in a manner that was fully compatible with what had been known before. An ardent advocate of evolutionary theory who wrote in opposition to creationism and intelligent design , Gould also critiqued the "Darwinian fundamentalist" view that natural selection is the sole cause of the features of organisms. This critique plus his advocacy of the theory of punctuated equilibrium provided fodder for those opposing natural selection as the primary causal agent of

PHOTO: OWEN EGAN The beauty of unpredictability
SYLVAIN COMEAU The Harvard University paleontologist and evolutionary biologist spoke eloquently to a packed house in Leacock 132 last Wednesday on "Why we can't predict the future: A Millennial Perspective." Gould noted that there is a long tradition of scientists who liked to claim that they could tell the future, given enough information. While science has largely put aside such claims, many people mistakenly view that as a failing. "We understand that scientific fields do not lend themselves to predictability, and we see them as the worse for it. We see the inability to predict as our limit. When we fail to accurately predict, that is not our limitation, that is just nature's reality. The reason we can't make predictions is the enormous complexity of nature, and the randomness thrown in, when you try to explain a unique and particular series of events." Gould said that the desire to predict stems from the human need to find meaning in chance events. "We have to extract meaning out of the confusion of the world around us. We do it by telling stories, and by looking for patterns. And whenever we see a pattern, we have to tell a story about it" This leads us to think that we can predict, when so much of the 'patterning' we see is really just a clumping of results within a random system."
