History and Philosophy Of Science | Structure of Evolutionary Theory
X755 | 2922 | Elisabeth Lloyd


In this seminar we shall read and discuss Stephen Jay Gould's last
book, the Structure of Evolutionary Theory.  Additional readings
will include relevant articles, both critical and supportive,
regarding the theses advanced in the book.  The seminar will focus
on developing a critical understanding of Gould's claims and
contributions.  The additional readings will be available in a
photocopied Course Reader.  Familiarity with evolutionary biology
will be helpful but not essential for seminar participants.
