daniel c. dennettpush darwin's dangerous idea...is overall great but chapter 13 is a bit weird.after reviewing diverse aspects of evolution in the previous chapters, for some reason dennett uses chapter 13 to pick a (lopsided, it seems to me) fight with a single author: stephen jay gould.this was less interesting than other chapters as it read a bit like a thorough demolition of a thesis that didn't seem to make a lot of sense to me in the first place. it felt a bit too much like a mid nineties science beef in the middle of a book about more timeless ideas.
