Biography[ edit ] Gould said he was inspired to become a paleontologist by T. His mother Eleanor was an artist, whose parents were Jewish immigrants living and working in the city's Garment District. Raised in a secular Jewish home, Gould did not formally practice religion and preferred to be called an agnostic.
Twenty years ago the scientist, who died yesterday at the age of 60, had a life-threatening bout of cancer. Many readers will remember the way he wrote about that episode, not only for its personal candor but also for the fact Gould paper he found comfort in a statistical analysis of his chances of survival.
It was wholly in keeping with the tenor of Mr. It was also in keeping that he chose to write about it for a popular audience.
The vast majority of the people who know Mr. They know him as a man who had an opinion on nearly everything and a way to turn nearly every opinion he had into a tour de force of analogy and historical example.
His scientific colleagues found him almost as brilliant as his popular audience did, but considerably more exasperating as well. He was never a scientific bomb-thrower; he worked, after all, in the heart of the scientific establishment.
But he delighted in small explosions, and he never hesitated to set them off when he thought it would do a discipline good. Gould had not reveled in the role of controversialist. That was his evolutionary niche. A man with so many opinions is bound, pretty often, to be wrong, but Mr.
Gould could be just as entertaining when he was wrong as when he was right. That was another reason he exasperated his colleagues, that and the fact that he came to stand for science itself in the minds of many lay readers. How his work will play in the years to come remains to be seen, of course.
His scientific achievements are solid, and he has done everything possible to throw light on the subjects that mattered to him. And if some of that light, just on the off chance, fell on Mr. Gould himself, it is hard to begrudge him that now.
Stephen Jay Gould, Evolution Theorist, Dies at 60 By Carol Kaesuk Yoon Stephen Jay Gould, the evolutionary theorist at Harvard University whose research, lectures and prolific output of essays helped to reinvigorate the field of paleontology, died yesterday at his home in Manhattan.
The cause was cancer, said his wife, Rhonda Roland Shearer. One of the most influential evolutionary biologists of the 20th century and perhaps the best known since Charles Darwin, Dr. Gould touched off numerous debates, forcing scientists to rethink sometimes entrenched ideas about evolutionary patterns and processes.
