Stephen Jay Gould Documentary


I am currently reading Gould's book, "The Mismeasure of Man" and I posted his and Lewiton's critique of the adaptationist program last quarter to this blog. Along with being an excellent writer and thinker, he apparently was an amazing speaker. I recently found a relatively short documentary of Gould from 1984. I found it quite entertaining, and I hope all of you will as well (some of it seems overly basic as it was surely made for a more general audience than us; just give it a chance). Did I mention he was on the Simpsons?
