Stephen Jay Gould (1941–2002) was an influential American palaeontologist, evolutionary biologist, and historian of science. One of his most important contributions to evolutionary theory was the idea of punctuated equilibrium, that he published in a 1972 paper together with Niles Eldredge. He was also a well-known popularizer of science, and between January 1974 and January 2001 contributed a continuous series of monthly essays on evolution to the magazine Natural History, which were published under the heading This View of Life. These essays were over time reprinted in collected volumes, of which ten were published in total, six with W.W. Norton, and the remaining four with Harmony Books, as can be seen in below table. This table lists the original year of publication and original publisher. These volumes went on to become classics in their own right and have since been reprinted many times, sometimes by different publishers.
