Punk eq done right in eonic model? /Remeasuring Stephen Jay Gould

May 21st, 2017 · No Comments

Why is Jacobin stuck on Gould? How about ‘punk eq’ done right in the eonic model. How about a debriefing on the limits of darwinism that even Gould could not bring himself (hypocritically) to acknowledge…

Historical context also acts as a constraint on new ideas. Darwin acknowledged the influence of the classical political economy of Smith and Malthus on his theory of evolution. Gould noted that his leftist upbringing and participation in the revolution of the Civil Rights Movement enabled him to recognize the importance of “punc eq’s” patterns of sudden and discontinuous evolutionary change.
