About this book

From the mid-1970s, Gould's monthly essay in Natural History and his full-length books bridged a gap between science and the wider culture. In this collection, Gould once again applied biographical perspectives to the illumination of key scientific concepts and their history, ranging from the discovery of the new scourge of syphillis by Fracastero in the sixteenth century and Isabelle Duncan's nineteenth century attempt at reconciling scripture and paleontology to Freud's weird speculations about human phylogeny and recent creationist attacks on the study of evolution.
