Summary:
Genius as a historical concept, rather than as a presumed trans-historical fact, is surprisingly underexamined, even as millions of daily decisions personal, institutional, and governmental are made according to unexamined assumptions about it. The essays in this book show that the origins and uses of concepts of genius warrant careful examination.
