    [E–book] The Richness of Life The Essential Stephen Jay Gould I've always been a fan of Stephen Jay Gould so The Richness of Life was an immediate must read for me even though it collects a lot of material that I've already read in one form or another But mutation hybridization and transformation are all parts of the evolutionary process right?

Gould was a celebrated evolutionary biologist and paleontologist who the US Congress in 2000 declared a living legend He only lived a couple years having lived with mesothelioma since 1982 I m very interested in what he was so passionate about but this is the first time i read him and the tome was all my public library offered It gave me lots of his 300 essays from his twenty books including one that won a National Book Award and some book excerptsGould described himself an agnostic who deeply respects religion and understands that science and religion do not overlap but can be separate ways of understanding the world He s certainly knowledgeable about evolution and paleontology teaching me a few good things that ll stick with me but the last section about religion impresses me as both respectful and skepticalI m not a baseball fan but he definitely is and uses baseball metaphors in his essays I did skip around this 635 page book and skim some too You ll enjoy reading a lot of the book that pays homage to a great scientist and writer I didn t usually feel he was too intellectual to understand either He s a Charles Darwin fan and yet he could criticize the founder of evolution in a way that made sense and was engaging It s not that he found Darwin wrong but that he didn t go far enough because of the limits set by his Victorian society and research I don t know why he didn t call himself an atheist since he doesn t even believe there s a soul but I think his great optimism not only kept him living with cancer so long but made him want to reach out to religious people with compassion interesting guy

The Richness of Life a selection of Stephen Jay Gould s prolific essays is an excellent introduction to Gould s major works and thinking Those new to natural history would find this collection a useful anchor to navigate Gould s other works for his careful attention to detail even in his popular science books can be daunting to beginners In Gould s works he often begins by asking a very specific uestion then in elucidating the mystery illustrates a general concept I have come to understand the power of treating generalities by particulars It is no use writing a book on the meaning of life though we all long to know the answers to such great uestions while rightly suspecting that true solutions no not exist But an essay on the meaning of 0400 hitting in baseball can reach a genuine conclusion with surprisingly extensive relevance to such broad topics as the nature of trends the meaning of excellence and even believe it or not the constitution of natural reality You have to sneak up on generalities not assault them head on One of my favorite lines from GK Chesterton proclaims Art is limitation the essence of every picture is the frame Introduction to the Revised and Expanded Edition The Mismeasure of Man He takes pleasure in finding the historical origins of ideas and theories uoting freuently from original sources I pride myself on always uoting from original sources I am no Latin scholar but I can read and translate most works in this universal scientific language of Beringer s time The lying stones of Marrakech Where he doesn t uote he describes elegantly in rich detail such that one feels participant to the study At the same time he gives sufficient modern information and analysis to help the reader understand the significance of the actions This is well illustrated in his essay Worm for a century and for all seasons on Charles Darwin s last book The Formation of Vegetable Mould Through the Action of Worms With Observations on Their HabitsThus we have three principles for carrying out historical science One may discuss these principles directly or recognize the little problems that Darwin used to exemplify them orchids coral reefs and wormsIn his treatise Darwin uses two major types of arguments to convince us that worms form the vegetable mold He first proves that worms are sufficiently numerous and widely spread in space and depth to do the job He demonstrates what a vast number of worms live unseen by us beneath our feet some 53767 per acre or 356 pounds of worm in good British soil He then gathers evidence from informants throughout the world to argue that worms are far widely distributed and in greater range of apparently unfavorable environments than we usually imagine He digs to see how deeply they extend into the soil and cuts one in two at fifty five inches although others report worms at eight feet down or This approach means that there always is something new and interesting to look forward to in Gould s essays even when you could predict his conclusion And his general truths like most general truths are not particularly novel do not seem trite but are rather rational extensions of his investigations The Richness of Life is divided into eight major section Autobiography Biography of other scientists Evolutionary Theory Size Form and Shape Stages and Seuences of the notion of progress Sociobiology and Evolutionary Psychology Racism Scientific and Otherwise ReligionEach section begins with a helpful introductory passages by Steven Rose to understand the social circumstances of some of these debates
