More About This Textbook

Overview

This one-of-a kind volume brings together leading scholars in intelligence research to present timely and forward-thinking perspectives. Each contributor builds upon past studies of intelligence and explores new ideas that differ radically from traditional notions about intelligence. Contributors also examine how intelligence changes over the lifespan, focusing on such issues as the importance of environmental context in determining intelligence and the importance of understanding how intelligence relates to other constructs like emotion and temperament. The roster of contributors includes distinguished scholars from a variety of orientations, including biology, cognition, development, personality, and artificial intelligence. This book will serve as a provocative resource for all readers interested in the concept of intelligence.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gary B Kaniuk, Psy.D.(Cermak Health Services)
Description: This book is the product of the Millennium Intelligence Conference, sponsored by the American Psychological Association, which brought together researchers in intelligence from many different perspectives.
Purpose: According to the editors, "this volume seeks to explore the most cutting-edge information to date on the topic, covering four main themes: the nature of intelligence, the development of intelligence, the measurement of intelligence, and intelligence, personality, and beyond." These are worthy objectives, which the book meets.
Audience: According to the editors, "...they (the authors of this volume) have written chapters that can be understood by people with a basic knowledge of psychology but no particular expertise in the field of intelligence." In my judgment, the book can be used by graduate psychology students in intellectual assessment classes. The editors and contributors are credible authorities.
Features: The book covers many important facets of intelligence including its meaning, how it develops, how it can be measured, and how it is affected by emotionality and personality. The book is good because it contains many points of view on such a complex subject. It is not easy reading, but it certainly covers the topic well.
Assessment: This is an excellent book. The concept of intelligence has been debated for over a century so revisiting it with current information is important for students and professionals alike. It covers many important areas and I felt like it really stimulated my thinking.
