Prefatory Note by Steve Dunn
Stephen Jay Gould was an influential evolutionary biologist who taught at Harvard University. He was the author of at least ten popular books on evolution, and science, including, among others, The Flamingo's Smile The Mismeasure of Man Wonderful Life , and Full House As far as I'm concerned, Gould's The Median Isn't the Message is the wisest, most humane thing ever written about cancer and statistics. It is the antidote both to those who say that, "the statistics don't matter," and to those who have the unfortunate habit of pronouncing death sentences on patients who face a difficult prognosis. Anyone who researches the medical literature will confront the statistics for their disease. Anyone who reads this will be armed with reason and with hope.

return to syllabus This View of Life Play It Again, Life: Natural History, February 1986 If the great experiment were rerun, the ending might be a world of wiwaxiids or a sea filled with little penis worms By Stephen Jay Gould Understanding after the fact confers no special perspicacity. The real test for any diviner can only lie in grasping the outcome at the outset. Correct predictions, in themselves, offer no proof of true wisdom, for how can we distinguish dumb luck from horse sense? The only good experiment is, alas, the most undoable of all intriguing thoughts in a world of irrevocable history-to run back the tape and play it again, Sam. This famous old thought experiment applies with special fascination to life's history-and for a particular, parochial reason. Humans arrived just yesterday on the stage not noticeably prepared for our advent. Would we appear at all if we could rewind the tape to an appropriate beginning (say, the origin of modern phyla in the Cambrian explosion more than 500 million years ago) and let it run again? If anything like human intelligence graced the replay, we might feel more secure in a certain sense of inexorability. If the rerun began with trilobites and ended with trilobites, we might treasure our fragility and thank our lucky stars. Our usual suspicion that we rule by right (and necessity) arises from the common conviction that, however noble the sentiment, the Preacher was no prophet when he proclaimed: "the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong" (Eccles. 9:11). Does not evolution (at least for vertebrates) pass through a sequence of advance from fish to amphibian to reptile to mammal to human? If evolution has moved along such a linear path of progress, how could the story have unfolded in any basically different way? What ever is, is right. We bolster this dubious interpretation with the cardinal misperception of retrospective history. From a vantage point at the top of the pile, the slopes seem to obviously inclined toward the summit. But again I ask: Can anyone read the final form of a drip castle in the first handful of wet sand?

    Natural History Oct, 1998 by Stephen Jay Gould
    Long, stagnant, and costly wars tend to begin in idealistic fervor and end in cynical misery. Our own Civil War inflicted a horrendous toll of death and seared our national consciousness with a brand that has only become deeper with time. In 1862, the Union Army rejoiced in singing the year's most popular ditty: Yes we'll rally round the flag, boys, we'll rally once again Shouting the battle cry of Freedom, We will rally from the hillside, we'll gather from the plain, Shouting the battle cry of Freedom... So we're springing to the call from the East and from the West And we'll hurl the rebel crew from the land we love the best. By 1864, Walter Kittredge's "Tenting on the Old Camp Ground" had become the favorite song of both sides. The chorus, with its haunting (if naive) melody, summarizes the common trajectory: Many are the hearts that are weary tonight

Gould, Stephen Jay
American, 1941–
One of the most significant contemporary science essayists is Stephen Jay Gould, recognized for his mastery of prose and for the importance of his primary topic, evolutionary biology, in an era when it is under increasing attack from those outside the scientific community. Gould, a professor of zoology, geology, and the history of science at Harvard University, has won many awards for both his scientific and his writing accomplishments. His column, “This View of Life,” which has appeared in Natural History since 1973, was honored by winning the National Magazine Award for essays and criticism in 1980. His books have also won the American Book Award for science, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award. His essays have been widely anthologized.
Gould is a prolific writer, appealing to a wide variety of audiences. In addition to professional scientists and people with an avowed interest in science, he has also regularly contributed essays to the New York Review of Books. In all of these venues, Gould attempts to explain and address the intellectual concerns of evolutionary biology.

Photo from: University of Michigan Windows to the Universe Perhaps more than any other contemporary American scientist Stephen Jay Gould has presented the modes, implications, benefits, and shortcomings of science to a literate public. As an inventive and productive scholar he has shaped and participated in crucial debates of the biological and geological sciences, particularly with regard to the theory of evolution, the interpretation of fossil evidence, and the meaning of diversity and change in biology. As the readership for his nearly twenty books and hundreds of essays, reviews, and articles has grown he has become one of the most popular and well-known writers and lecturers on scientific topics. He has distinguished himself by elaborating his critique of contemporary evolutionary theory via an eclectic range of discourse, deriving inspiration from his personal reflections across an astonishing array of historical and humanistic disciplines, popular culture, and sports. Gould's empirical field studies have concentrated on fossil mollusks and snails found in Bermuda. His first major monographic work, Ontogeny and Phylogeny (1977), treated the theory of recapitulation in evolutionary biology. His second

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 Simpson and Ernest Mayr have claimed, imply a lack of extraterrestrial intelligence in general: When we use "evolutionary theory" to deny categorically the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence, we commit the classic fallacy of substituting specifics (individual repeatability of humanoids) for classes (the probability that evolution elsewhere might produce a creature in the general class of intelligent beings.) I can present a good argument from "evolutionary theory" against the repetition of anything like a human body elsewhere; I cannot extend it to the general proposition that intelligence in some form might pervade the universe. Gould refers to the phenomenon of

Although the late Harvard University paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould is one of the leading proponents of evolution theory, he criticizes evolutionary biologists in stuffing scientific literature with non-evident tales. Gould describes such stories in his following words: Gould, an evolutionist paleontologist, was also one of the leading theoreticians of the punctuated model of evolution. (See Punctuated evolution

    Gould, Stephen Jay, evolution Darwin are thus unlikely to be found. Elaboration of these concepts has led to extensive scientific debate. 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, Stephen Jay
(b. Sept. 10, 1941, New York, N.Y., U.S.), American paleontologist, evolutionary biologist, and science writer. Gould graduated from Antioch College in 1963 and received his Ph.D. in paleontology at Columbia University in 1967. After briefly teaching at Antioch, he joined the faculty of Harvard University in 1967, becoming a full professor there in 1973. Gould's own technical research focused on the evolution and speciation of West Indian land snails. With Niles Eldredge, he developed in 1972 the theory of punctuated equilibria, a revision of Darwinian theory proposing that the creation of new species through evolutionary change occurs not at slow, constant rates over millions of years but rather in rapid bursts over periods as short as thousands of years, which are then followed by long periods of stability during which organisms undergo little further change. Apart from his technical research, Gould became widely known as a writer, polemicist, and popularizer of evolutionary theory.

Obituaries: from The New York Times Stephen Jay Gould, 60, Is Dead; Enlivened Evolutionary Theory
Stephen Jay Gould, the evolutionary theorist at Harvard University whose research, lectures and prolific output of essays helped to reinvigorate the field of paleontology, died yesterday at his home in Manhattan. He was 60. The cause was cancer, said his wife, Rhonda Roland Shearer. One of the most influential evolutionary biologists of the 20th century and perhaps the best known since Charles Darwin, Dr. Gould touched off numerous debates, forcing scientists to rethink sometimes entrenched ideas about evolutionary patterns and processes. One of his best known theories, developed with Niles Eldredge, argued that evolutionary change in the fossil record came in fits and starts rather than a steady process of slow change.
