Hen's Teeth and Horse's Toes by Stephen Jay Gould

Book Description

Over a century after Darwin published the Origin of Species, Darwinian theory is in a "vibrantly healthy state," writes Stephen Jay Gould, its most engaging and illuminating exponent. Exploring the "peculiar and mysterious particulars of nature," Gould introduces the reader to some of the many and wonderful manifestations of evolutionary biology.

Books By Author Stephen Jay Gould

Full House by Stephen Jay Gould Full House, Paperback (September 2011)

Gould shows why a more accurate way of understanding our world is to look at a given subject within its own context, to see it as a part of a spectrum of variation and then to reconceptualize trends as expansion or contraction of this "full house" of variation, and not as the progress or degeneration of an average value, or single thing.

Lying Stones of Marrakech by Stephen Jay Gould Lying Stones of Marrakech, Paperback (September 2011)

Gould covers topics as diverse as episodes in the birth of paleontology to lessons from Britain's four greatest Victorian naturalists. This collection presents the richness and fascination of the various lives that have fueled the enterprise of science and opened our eyes to a world of unexpected wonders.

Questioning the Millennium by Stephen Jay Gould Questioning the Millennium, Paperback (September 2011)

Gould addresses three questions about the millennium with his typical erudition, warmth, and whimsy: What is the concept of a millennium and how has its meaning shifted over time? How did the projection of Christ's 1,000-year reign become a secular measure? And when exactly does the millennium begin--January 1, 2000, or January 2, 2001?

Leonardo's Mountain of Clams and the Diet of Worms by Stephen Jay Gould Leonardo's Mountain of Clams and the Diet of Worms, Paperback (September 2011)

With his customary brilliance, Gould examines the puzzles and paradoxes great and small that build nature's and humanity's diversity and order.
