"Could Darwinist be the new Marxist?" they asked...well, Marx was definitely a Darwinist, but confessedly not a Marxist.
Anyway, Gould wrote an essay about this issue, I remembered reading long ago...and now found at this website:

You might try his essay on Addison.

Eastabrook makes a rare appearance to respond:
His book on (roughly) the pre-modern world view, The DiscardedImage (inaugural lectures at Cambridge as I recall), is littleshort of brilliant. I've insisted that graduate studentsbeginning Renaissance/Reformation studies start with it. It goes a good towards saving them from what a quite different historian called "the enormous condescension of posterity." barely a page worth and only pretty complete booklist (online mail order catalog)

Subject: Ideas... some great, some stinky
For the past week or so I've been browsing<> and there's some pretty amazing stuff there. (Some not so good also, but that's the web for ya.) They solicited ideas from the general (U.S.) public and the publicposted a lot of them. Some are quite in keeping with notions weassociate with ICs. Other ideas are frankly way whacked out. Earlynext month they're going to have the public vote on what they considerthe best ideas contributed. So you might want to get in on that. Butthere's about 22,000 posted there, so you might want to start readingon them pretty soon. The website has both a subject-browse page and asite search feature, so you can seek out the kind of contributions ofinterest to you. The website is also soliciting your comments on anyand all of these ideas. You can post them right there on the website.
The top twenty-one ideas are going to be published in some book and--who knows-- some of them might be implemented by governments or unionsor other organizations. Several people posted ideas relating toworker-owned businesses. There's a lot of ideas for nurturing the useof alternative energy sources too. And there's a lot more. Have alook and plug in your comments. Cut loose!
