Stephen Jay Gould's writing remains the modern standard by which popular science writing is judged. Ever since the last 1970s, his monthly essay in Natural History and his full-length books have bridged the yawning gap between science and the wider culture. This fascinating new collection of essays contains some of Gould's bestw riting on a variety of subjects ranging from Leonardo da Vinci and Martin Luther to fossils and the history of science. As always, these essays brillantly display his gift for colloquial and vivid explanation, and include fascinating oddities from the natural world and the printed word.... articles have therefore focused upon Danaa#39;s belated, strictly minimal, and reluctant a€œconversiona€ to evolutiona€”as first stated in the 1874 edition of his Manual of Geology ... The a€œheroica€ approach does great disservice to Danaa#39;s powerful ... Danaa#39;s last hurrah for evolution was a little blip, not the definition of his scientific life.
