STRUCTURE of Evolutionary Theory, The (Book), GOULD, Stephen Jay, 1941-2002, DARWIN, Charles, 1809-1882, NATURAL selection, EVOLUTION (Biology), and EVOLUTIONARY theories
The article presents information on the book "The Structure of Evolutionary Theory," by Stephen Jay Gould. This book is about Darwinism and theory of evolution. Famous scientist Charles Darwin is often thought to have rescued the history of life from the superstitious fantasies of religion, by basing his theory on good, solid, empirical evidence. But, as Gould and noticed, the empirical evidence does not indicate that evolution proceeds by incremental, incessant natural selection, as Darwin claimed.
FLAMINGO'S Smile, The (Book), GOULD, Stephen Jay, 1941-2002, SCIENCE the humanities, LITERATURE science, ARNOLD, Matthew, 1822-1888, and BOOKS
The article presents information on the book "The Flamingo's Smile: Reflections in Natural History," by Stephen Jay Gould. The biologist Thomas Henry Huxley and his critic, another Rede Lecturer, Matthew Arnold, had surveyed the same territory nearly a century before. Arnold's 1882 Rede Lecture, "Literature and Science," which defended the virtues of a classical, nonscientific education, was written in reply to "Science and Culture," a paper presented by Huxley the previous year. Paradoxically, by choosing sides, all participants in this debate agree on a first principle: the natural sciences and the humanities are disjunctive.
