Book review: ‘The Hedgehog, the Fox, and the Magister's Pox’ by Stephen Jay Gould

Mending and Minding the Misconceived Gap Between Science and the Humanities.

The Hedgehog, the Fox, and the Magister's PoxGould's last science book. It goes on a bit, but the chapter criticising Edward O Wilson's misappropriation of the term Consilience is Gould at his best.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
