The Zombie Theory of Genetic Intelligence

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

The notion that 'intelligence' or 'ability' is genetically inherited refuses to die. This article reviews the way such a notion has long been used to justify inequality in society, and considers the methodological failings and deceptions, and the interpretative blind spots, of those who advance the heritability of 'intelligence' as a basis for understanding people's learning.
