Abstract. Scientific revolutions are no everyday affair. So it is of some importance that Fortune (Alexander, ) and several other major magazines have recently proclaimed that we are in the midst of a major Kuhnian revolution in the social sciences, one that has significant implications for social policy. According to these magazines, ‘environmentalist’ theories, which assume that Cited by: RACE, IQ AND HERITABILITY where prominent philosophers of science systematically defend claims that crumble as soon as they are confronted with the pertinent scientific liter- ature. The topic in question is the explanation of racial differences in IQ. In trying to document my thesis, I will obviously have to analyze and.   Estimates of IQ heritability are subject to a variety of systematic errors. The IQ scores themselves contain uncontrollable, systematic errors of unknown magnitude. These arise because IQ scores, unlike conventional physical and biological measurements, have a purely instrumental definition. The effects of these errors are apparent in the very large discrepancies among IQ correlations Cited by:   IQ heritability, the portion of a population's IQ variability attributable to the effects of genes1, has been investigated for nearly a century, yet it remains controversial. Covariance between.

"Mainstream Science on Intelligence" was a public statement issued by a group of academic researchers in fields associated with intelligence testing. It was originally published in the Wall Street Journal on Decem , as a response to what the authors claimed were inaccurate and misleading reports made by the media regarding academic consensus on the results of intelligence research .   The Heritability of Intelligence: Not What You Think.

A significant heritability estimate, genetic correlation, or DNA marker associated with intelligence does not mean that intelligence cannot be modified by the one, the environment is an important determinant of individual differences in intelligence.   Serious Science - Robert Plomin on the IQ test, genetic intellectual predispositions, and the Flynn Effect.   In a new book likely to rekindle fierce controversy, psychologist Robert Plomin argues that genes largely shape our personalities and that the latest science is too compelling to ignore.
