Ernst Mayr 1904-2005

I really must get back to writing about science. Here’s a start: if you are a biologist, have much interest in evolutionary theory or are at all interested in the history of science, this charming eulogy for Ernst Mayr, replete with first-hand anecdotes, is a must-read. Don’t miss the comment section either. Hat-tip: Brian Leiter.

    UPDATE: Down in the comments box, Sennoma has kindly provided a link to Michael Ruse’s eloquent eulogy of Mayr. You’ve probably already read it, but if you haven’t, go and do so — and be sure to read the comments as well. (Cheers, Sennoma!)
