    Leonardo's Mountain Of Clams And The Diet Of Worms

    By: Stephen Jay Gould

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    A fascinating new collection of Stephen Jay Gould's popular essays from 'Natural History' magazine - the longest-running series of scientific essays in history.

    In this collection, Gould consciously and unconventionally formulates a humanistic natural history, a consideration of how humans have learned to study and understand nature, rather than a history of nature itself. With his customary brilliance, Gould examines the puzzles and paradoxes great and small that build nature's and humanity's diversity and order.

    In affecting short biographies, he depicts how scholars grapple with problems of science and philosophy as he illuminates the interaction of the outer world with the unique human ability to struggle to understand the whys and wherefores of existence.
