TIME'S ARROW, TIME'S CYCLE:

Myth and Metaphor in the Discovery of Geological Time

(Second hand copy in very good condition)

By Stephen Jay Gould

A history of geology by the palaeontologist Stephen Jay Gould, in which the author offers a historical account of the conceptualisation of 'Deep Time' and uniformitarianism using the works of the English theologian Thomas Burnet, and the Scottish geologists James Hutton and Charles Lyell.

  

Stephen Jay Gould's command of palaeontology and evolutionary theory brings dust and dead bones to life. In 'Time's Arrow, Time's Cycle' his subject is nothing less than geology's signal contribution to human thought - the discovery of 'Deep Time', the vastness of earth's history, a history so ancient that we can comprehend it only as metaphor.

Published by Harvard University Press. 1987. Hardback with dust jacket. 222 pages. Second hand copy in very good condition.
