Description
What do we mean when we describe a person as "intelligent?" Concepts of intelligence wield a powerful influence on research into the brain and on how individuals progress in society. Yet, remarkably, there is still no agreed scientific consensus about what this ubiquitous and adaptable concept means. In The Making of Intelligence Ken Richardson looks at how intelligence has been characterized and measured in the past, explores current trends in our understanding and uses of the concept, and predicts what form they will take in the future.

He argues that intelligence is not predetermined merely by factors such as genes and environment, but is created by self-organizing interactions within evolved developmental systems. Considering the implications for society of this "dynamic systems" approach, Richardson predicts that as our understanding of the relationship between the mind and the brain improves, the notion of intelligence as a single concept may disappear altogether.

From the writings of Charles Darwin and Herbert Spencer on evolution and adaptation to the reflections of Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky on logical reasoning; from the formulation of early IQ tests by Francis Binet and Henri Simon to their recent, provocative rebirth in the assertions of Charles Murray and Richard Herrnstein's The Bell Curve, The Making of Intelligence is a lucid, judicious critical analysis of this controversial and important subject.
