One of the renowned names in the field of paleontology, evolutionary biology and history of science, Stephen Jay Gould, was noted for his theory on Pleistocene and Recent History of the Subgenus Poecilozonites in Bermuda. His other works included his thesis of Punctuated equilibrium and non-overlapping magisterial. Gould’s essays on evolution titled ‘This View of Life’ were published in the Natural History magazine. These essays were later released as best-selling books titled ‘Ever Since Darwin’, ‘The Panda's Thumb’, ‘Hen's Teeth’, ‘Horse's Toes’ and ‘The Flamingo's Smile’. His endless list of accolades includes the National Book Award, Paleontological Society Medal, and Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Apart from his work in science, Gould was also an ardent fan of baseball and sabermetrics. His essays on baseball statistics were posthumously released as ‘Triumph and Tragedy in Mudville’. Here are some of the most interesting quotes from this legend of evolutionary biology.
