No psychological topic is of greater interest to the general public, and to the discipline of psychology as a whole, than intelligence. Laypeople argue at length about who is intelligent, how to become smarter, and what difference IQ makes. Psychologists and other scholars debate the definition of intelligence, the best ways to measure it, and the relation between intelligence and other social virtues, like creativity, or social vices, like criminal behaviour. This book confronts this situation in a clear and comprehensive way. Within one volume, we have surveyed the major approaches to intelligence that have evolved since the scientific study of intelligence began, about a century ago. 351pp. Index. Size: 4to Crown (9¾" x 7½")
