The problem of IQ practice is IQ theory. Alfred Binet, the founder of mental testing made three fundamental assumptions. First that native intelligence and developed intelligence is necessary for school learning. And third that intelligence can be measured by standardized tests. The endemic crisis of IQ theory stems from these contradictory assumptions. The Spearman-Jensen theory of general intelligence, computer models of cognitive psychology and new revisions to psychometric theory have all failed to resolve the crisis. This argued investigation takes a look at the much contested issues of intelligence, heredity and measurement. Adopting a modern realist approach "Intelligence and Realism" aims to get to the bottom of the IQ question. The main features of this IQ critique is its non-technical presentation of realist arguments. Most IQ critiques are politically based and although effective with a committed audience have little influence on psychologists. This critique confronts new (post 1975) positions adopted by defenders of IQ.
