The General Factor of Intelligence: How General Is It?

The General Factor of Intelligence: How General Is It?

Robert J. Sternberg


This edited quantity provides a balanced method of the continuing debate of simply how normal the "general issue" of intelligence is. to complete this objective, the editors selected a couple of designated ways to the learn of intelligence--psychometric, genetic-epistemological, cognitive, organic, behavior-genetic, sociocultural, systems--and requested extraordinary students to jot down from the viewpoint of those techniques. each one technique includes chapters, one via a pupil leaning towards a view arguing for the higher generality of g, and the opposite via a pupil leaning towards a view arguing for the lesser generality of g. the students aren't easily "for" or "against" those outlooks, fairly they supply a extra textured view of the overall issue, trying to clarify it in mental phrases which are simply understandable.

meant for psychologists in all parts, together with scientific, consulting, academic, cognitive, institution, developmental, and industrial-organizational, this e-book can be of curiosity to educators, sociologists, anthropologists, and people attracted to the character of intelligence.
