Riassunto:

Rereading the Fossil Record presents the first-ever historical account of the origin, rise, and importance of paleobiology, from the mid-nineteenth century to the late 1980s. Drawing on a wealth of archival material, David Sepkoski shows how the movement was conceived and promoted by a small but influential group of paleontologists and examines the intellectual, disciplinary, and political dynamics involved in the ascendency of paleobiology. By tracing the role of computer technology, large databases, and quantitative analytical methods in the emergence of paleobiology, this book also offers insight into the growing prominence and centrality of data-driven approaches in recent science.

About the Author:
David Sepkoski is Senior Research Scholar at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science. He is coeditor, with Michael Ruse, of The Paleobiological Revolution: Essays on the Growth of Modern Paleontology, also published by the University of Chicago Press.

Descrizione libro Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2012., 2012. Octavo, dustwrapper,432 pp.,black and white illustrations. This book provides the first historical account of the origin, rise, and importance of palaeobiology, from the mid-nineteenth century to the late 1980s. Drawing on a wealth of archival material, Sepkoski shows how the movement was conceived and promoted by a small but influential group of palaeontologists - including Stephen Jay Gould and Niles Eldredge, among others - and examines the intellectual, disciplinary, and political dynamics involved in the ascendancy of palaeobiology. By emphasizing the close relationship between palaeobiology and other evolutionary disciplines, this book writes a new chapter in the history of evolutionary biology, while also offering insights into the dynamics of disciplinary change in modern science.
