Intelligence

A Brief History

"This book surveys the history and measurement of intelligence through seven metaphors commonly used in the field: geographical (maps), computational, biological, epistemological, sociological, anthropological and systems. This treatment is extended through the chapters of the book dealing with measurement and discussions of the genetic and environmental bases of intelligence as well as group (sex and race) differences." The Scientific and Medical Network

"This book is, therefore, strongly recommended to all serious undergraduate or postgraduate students of intelligence or to anyone interested in the historical development of psychological constructs." Social Psychological Review, October 2005

Intelligence: A Brief History is a lively and accessible look at the origins of the field of intelligence. The book explores the nature and measurement of intelligence, examines approaches to teaching intelligence, and discusses individual and group differences in intelligence. Les mer

Kunders vurdering

K
Katrine – 26.09.2005

– Boka er anlagt som en pensumbok. Den forteller om hvordan psykologien har prøvd å hanskes med 'intelligens' gjennom 120 år, ikke minst når det gjelder muligheten for å teste og måle IQ. Dette er en grunnleggende bok for alle som interesserer seg for fenomenet intelligens, og et godt utgangspunkt for videre lesning. Boka er kanskje ikke direkte underholdende, men intelligens er uansett et fascinerende fenomen, og man føler seg faktisk mer intelligent etter å ha lest denne boka. Kanskje blir det også enklere å oppnå godt resultat på en IQ-test når man vet hva som ligger til grunn for slike tester.
