I'm a big fan of Steve Gould. I don't agree with all of Gould's views, but I find I am in much more agreement with them than the 'British School', or adaptionists - which I find to be somewhat stagnant of late.
Anyhow, there are a couple of recent blog posts about Gould that I think deserve greater circulation, so they are here:
Sandwalk - An Adaptionist View of Steven Jay Gould
Laelaps - Stephen Jay Gould's view of life
