Browse the Online NewsHour's science coverage or Gergen Dialogues Gould's final essay for Natural History of a twenty-seven-year series. DAVID GERGEN, : Steve, you’ve written this very challenging book about evolution, challenging the notions that are in our heads. Maybe we ought to start with what the conventional notion is about evolution. STEPHEN JAY GOULD, Author, Full House : The conventional view is more a result of what western culture makes us want to think and what actually happened in the history of life. Darwin’s theory in natural selection doesn’t make any reference to any notion of progress, or development or increasing complexity. It’s only a theory about adaptation to changing environments. There are as many ways to adapt to local environments by becoming less complex is by getting more complex, but for reasons of our history and our biases and our preferences, we very much want to

Inventing allies in the sky. Stephen Jay Gould has written his most disappointing book, a wrong-headed attempt to equate religion with morality. By Kenan Malik
Kenan Malik Published 19 February 2001 Rocks of Ages: science and religion in the fullness of life Stephen Jay Gould Jonathan Cape, 241pp, Ł14.99 ISBN 0224060929 By the time you read this, children in the American state of Kansas will, with any luck, be reading The Origin of Species in their classrooms. In August 1999, the Kansas Board of Education, under pressure from creationists, removed evolution (as well as the Big Bang theory) from the school science curriculum. It took a vocal campaign by scientists and others - and the unseating of two anti- evolution members of the board in local elections - to help nudge the authority back into the modern world. This book will no doubt confirm the worst fears of Gould's enemies, many of whom have long accused him of giving succour to creationists. Even Gould's admirers, however, will find it hard to accept his arguments here. There is, Gould acknowledges, little "original" about Noma. Unfortunately, there is nothing right about it, either.

  • Next Section
    In 1979, Lewontin and I borrowed the architectural term “spandrel” (using the pendentives of San Marco in Venice as an example) to designate the class of forms and spaces that arise as necessary byproducts of another decision in design, and not as adaptations for direct utility in themselves. This proposal has generated a large literature featuring two critiques: ( i ) the terminological claim that the spandrels of San Marco are not true spandrels at all and ( ii Previous Section Next Section

    Just as the four evangelists fit so splendidly—but so obviously secondarily and epiphenomenally—into the spandrels of San Marco, I have been delighted beyond all measure by the unintended consequences spawned by our metaphor and example (

    By Stephen Jay Gould
    Chapter 2
    "The Pattern of Life's History"
    Stuart Kauffman:
    Steve is extremely bright, inventive. He thoroughly understands paleontology; he thoroughly understands evolutionary biology. He has performed an enormous service in getting people to think about punctuated equilibrium, because you see the process of stasis/sudden change, which is a puzzle. It's the cessation of change for long periods of time. Since you always have mutations, why don't things continue changing? You either have to say that the particular form is highly adapted, optimal, and exists in a stable environment, or you have to be very puzzled. Steve has been enormously important in that sense.

      What does the dreaded "E" word mean, anyway
      Natural History Feb, 2000 by Stephen Jay Gould
      A reverie for the opening of the new Hayden Planetarium. Evolution posed no terrors in the liberal constituency of New York City when I studied biology at Jamaica High School in 1956. But our textbooks didn't utter the word eithera legacy of the statutes that had brought William Jennings Bryan and Clarence Darrow to legal blows at Tennessee's trial of John Scopes in 1925. The subject remained doubly hidden within my textbookcovered only in chapter 63 (of 66) and described in euphemism as "the hypothesis of racial development." The antievolution laws of the Scopes era, passed during the early 1920s in several southern and border states, remained on the books until 1968, when the Supreme Court declared them unconstitutional. The laws were never strictly enforced, but their existence cast a pall over American education, as textbook publishers capitulated to produce "least common denominator" versions acceptable in all statesso schoolkids in New York got short shrift because the statutes of some distant states had labeled evolution dangerous and unteachable. Pre-Darwinian terminology for evolutiona widely discussed, if unorthodox, view of life in early nineteenth-century biologygenerally used such names as transformation, transmutation, or the development hypothesis. In choosing a label for his own, very different account of genealogical change, Darwin would never have considered "evolution" as a descriptor, because that vernacular English word implied a set of consequences contrary to the most distinctive features of his proposed revolutionary mechanism of change.

    37. Piltdown Revisited
    By Stephen Jay Gould
    Piltdown Revisited Stephen Jay Gould Natural History March 1979 [86] Nothing is quite so fascinating as a well-aged mystery. Many connois-seurs regard Josephine Tey's The Daughter of Time as the greatest detec-tive story ever written because its pro-tagonist is Richard III, not the modern and insignificant murderer of Roger Ackroyd. The old chestnuts are peren-nial sources for impassioned and fruit-less debate. Who was Jack the Ripper? Was Shakespeare Shakespeare? My profession of paleontology of-fered its entry to the first rank of histori-cal conundrums a quarter-century ago. In 1953, Piltdown man was exposed as a certain fraud perpetrated by a very uncertain hoaxer. Since then, interest has never flagged. People who cannot tell Tyrannosaurus from Allosaurus have firm opinions about the identity of Piltdown's forger. Rather than simply ask "whodunnit?" this column treats what I regard as an intellectually more interesting issue: why did anyone ever accept Piltdown man in the first place? I was led to address the subject by re-cent and prominent news reports add-ing-with abysmally poor evidence, in my opinion-yet another prominent suspect to the list. Also, as an old mys-tery reader, I cannot refrain from ex-pressing my own prejudice, all in due time. In 1912, Charles Dawson, a lawyer and amateur archeologist from Sussex, brought several cranial fragments to Arthur Smith Woodward, Keeper of Geology at the British Museum (Natu-ral History). The first, he said, had been unearthed by workmen from a gravel pit in 1908. Since then, he had searched the spoil heaps and found a few more fragments. The bones, worn and deeply stained, seemed indigenous to the ancient gravel; they were not the remains of a more recent interment. Yet the skull appeared remarkably modern in form, although the bones were unusually thick.

    39. Piltdown Conspiracy
    By Stephen Jay Gould
    The Piltdown Conspiracy Hen's Teeth and Horses' Toes Stephen Jay Gould Introduction and Background OF CONSPIRACIES In his great aria "La calumnia," Don Basillo, the music master of Rossini's Barber of Seville, graphically describes how evil whispers grow, with appropriate watering, into truly grand and injurious calumnies. For the less conniving among us, the same lesson may be read with opposite intent: in adversity, try to contain. The desire to pin evil deeds upon a single soul acting alone reflects this strategy; conspiracy theories have a terrible tendency to ramify like Basillo's whispers until the runaway solution to "whodunit" becomes "everybodydunit." But conspiracies do occur. Even the pros and pols now doubt that Lee Harvey Oswald [202] acted alone; and everybody did do it on the Orient Express. 2 The Piltdown case, surely the most famous and spectacular fraud of twentieth-century science, has experienced this tension ever since its exposé in 1953 . The semiofficial, contained version holds that Charles Dawson, the lawyer and amateur archeologist who "found" the first specimens, devised and executed the entire plot himself. Since J. S. Weiner's elegant case virtually precludes Dawson's innocence ( The Piltdown Forgery
