Description

This text examines various theories regarding IQ. The author reviews and rejects claims such as: tht IQ tests provide a measure of inherent mental capacities; that intelligence and "race" are linked; that there is a "gene for intelligence"; and that low IQ means restricted capabilities. He aims to show how these and other claims havae dubious intellectual support and damaging social consequences, and seeks a more careful understanding of the central questions.
