Read full description of the books Der Daumen des Panda: Betrachtungen zur Naturgeschichte:

Il pollice del panda raccoglie alcuni dei più importanti brani scritti da Stephen Jay Gould sulla storia naturale e le teorie evoluzionistiche. Con il suo stile consueto, diretto e arguto, Gould spazia tra gli aspetti più disparati della storia naturale: dalla teoria dell'evoluzione di Darwin all'anatomia comparata, dall'evoluzione della razza umana a diverse teorie scientifiche del passato oggi ormai dimenticate. Ma l'autore mostra anche come la scienza possa essere usata per giustificare la discriminazione di precisi gruppi sociali o minoranze: come i "pregiudizi scientifici" del secolo scorso nei confronti delle donne e delle popolazioni europee, o le teorie che mettono in relazione la massa cerebrale con le capacità intellettuali.

Read information about the author

Ebook Der Daumen des Panda: Betrachtungen zur Naturgeschichte read Online! Stephen Jay Gould was a prominent American paleontologist, evolutionary biologist, and historian of science. He was also one of the most influential and widely read writers of popular science of his generation. Gould spent most of his career teaching at Harvard University and working at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Most of Gould's empirical research was on land snails. Gould helped develop the theory of punctuated equilibrium, in which evolutionary stability is marked by instances of rapid change. He contributed to evolutionary developmental biology. In evolutionary theory, he opposed strict selectionism, sociobiology as applied to humans, and evolutionary psychology. He campaigned against creationism and proposed that science and religion should be considered two compatible, complementary fields, or "magisteria," whose authority does not overlap.

Many of Gould's essays were reprinted in collected volumes, such as Ever Since Darwin and The Panda's Thumb, while his popular treatises included books such as The Mismeasure of Man, Wonderful Life and Full House.
