Annotation: American paleontologist Gould (1941-2002), a fierce champion of rationality, argues here that science and the humanities can co-exist. His perspectives include Newton's light, the weight of humanism, the dynasty of dichotomy, sweetness and light as tough and healing truth, and the false path of reductionism and the consilience of equal regard. This final volume of seven he contracted to write for Harmony Books was published posthumously, and reprinted here in a series of his books. Belknap Press is an imprint of Harvard University Press.
