Stephen J. Gould Memorial Meeting

"Stephen J. Gould's Legacy: Nature, History, Society"

Stephen J. Gould

On May 10 and 11 2012, in Venice, Palazzo Franchetti hosted an international meeting, organized by  the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti , on the tenth anniversary of  Stephen Jay Gould's death. Palaeontologist at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, eminent evolutionary biologist, science writer, science historian and opinion maker, Gould gave us an extended and revised version of the theory of evolution, his "Darwinian pluralism", which is today an excellent frame for understanding the scientific  advancements in many evolutionary fields.
