Obituary: Stephen Jay Gould

He was a pretty neat guy... lots of ideas on evolution and intelligence.

One of the most interesting reading dealing with Gould and his ideas in
my opinion is an exchange found in the New York Review of Books between
himself, Daniel Dennett, Stephen Pinker, and John Maynard Smith: (first article in the series)

His famous book that dealt with intelligence is titled "Mismeasure of
Man" but it is also dealt with in his other works.

He died of cancer.
