is the purpose of the site?
Basically to make the ideas of Stephen Jay Gould more accessible to students, teachers,
and science enthusiasts of all stripes and forms. Gould did this so well in print, that we
hope to extend this influence to the World Wide Web. Alternatively we may be seen as a
complement of sorts to John Catalano's excellent website The World of Richard
Dawkins, which adopts Dawkins' more conservative approach to biology.
Taken together, these pages will give readers a more enriching prospective on
the many competing ideas facing the study of biological evolution.
Who is behind the site?
This unofficial website was put together by Miguel
Chavez, while a student of Yuba College in Northern California. If you would like to forward
me a comment or question, please feel free to do so at this email.
Stephen Jay Gould have an official site?
Yes. Gould's widow Rhonda Roland Shearer, and her associates at the Art Science Research Lab, are currently
preparing a massive Internet archive of Gould's work and scientific lectures. A
portion of this effort is now available, but the
site remains under development (www.sjgarchive.org).
I have permission to reprint one of your articles?
I really couldn't say. Permission request should be made out to whomever published the
essay or article in question. Here are a few places to look for such permission requests:
Natural History magazine,
W. W. Norton & Company, and
Harvard University Press. I would
personally like to thank Rhonda Roland Shearer for giving us permission to host many
of the essays and articles available here.
is the site updated?
All significant updates are posted on the What's New? page.
