“The most erroneous stories are those we think we know best and therefore never scrutinize or question.” Stephen Jay Gould

Stephen Jay Gould Sep 10, 1941 – May 20, 2002, author of Dinosaur in a Haystack, was an American paleontologist, evolutionary biologist and historian of science.
Gould's most significant contribution to evolutionary biology was the theory of punctuated equilibrium, which he developed with Niles Eldredge in 1972.
Gould was known by the general public mainly from his 300 popular essays in the magazine Natural History written both for the specialist and non-specialist. In April 2000, the US Library of Congress named him a “Living Legend.”
