9780080437934: The Scientific Study of General Intelligence: Tribute to Arthur Jensen

This book celebrates two triumphs in modern psychology: the successful development and application of a solid measure of general intelligence; and the personal courage and skills of the man who made this possible - Arthur R. Jensen from Berkeley University.

The volume traces the history of intelligence from the early 19th century approaches, to the most recent analyses of the hierarchical structure of cognitive abilities, and documents the transition from a hopelessly confused concept of intelligence to the development of an objective measure of psychometric g. The contributions illustrate the impressive power g has with respect to predicting educational achievement, getting an attractive job, or social stratification.

The book is divided into six parts as follows: Part I presents the most recent higher-stream analysis of cognitive abilities, Part II deals with biological aspects of g, such as research on brain imaging, glucose uptake, working memory, reaction time, inspection time, and other biological correlates, and concludes with the latest findings in g-related molecular genetics. Part III addresses demographic aspects of g, such as geographic-, race-, and sex-differences, and introduces differential psychological aspects as well. Part IV concentrates on the g nexus, and relates such highly diverse topics as sociology, genius, retardation, training, education, jobs, and crime to g. Part V contains chapters critical of research on g and its genetic relationship, and also presents a rejoinder. Part VI looks at one of the greatest contemporary psychologists, Professor Emeritus Arthur R. Jensen as teacher and mentor.

Review:

"This is a gem of a book and a fitting honor to a distinguished scientist and scholar..."
-INTELLIGENCE

"...there is much of value in this book. There are succinct and authoritative reviews on a variety of topics?reaction time and inspection time, the molecular genetics of IQ (or g?), the causes of the correlation between brain size and IQ, education and intelligence, the predictive value of g (as opposed to subsidiary factors!) for job selection, the worldwide association between crime and IQ. It is entirely appropriate that a book intended as a tribute to Arthur Jensen should contain such a wealth of solid empirical information on such a wide variety of topics."
