Steve Gould: Marxist as Biologist


Dusek V. Steve Gould: Marxist as Biologist. Rethinking Marxism [Internet]. 2003;15 (4) :451-466.


Steve Gould incorporated approaches and themes from Marxism into the content of his biology. Gould has pursued his research and theorizing with a constant awareness of the history and social context of prior investigations. Beyond his well-known critiques of biological deterministm and "race science" Gould incorporated Marx's historical approach in his understanding of evolution and of development of the individual organism and the interaction of the two. There are also some elements of structuralism in his approach.
