The structure and measurement of intelligence by H. J Eysenck( Book )
23 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 867 libraries worldwide
It is generally and rightly considered a virtue in a teacher to observe accurately the differences in ability among his pupils, and to discover the direction in which the nature of each particularly inclines him. There is an incredible amount of variability in talent, and the forms of minds are no less varied than the forms of bodies Quintilian (70 A.D.) There are many good books on Intelligence, such as Cattell's (1971) monumen tal and original contribution, or Matarazzo's (1972) careful and scholarly analy sis, or Butchers (1968) excellent introduction. Other outstanding contributions ar
Nature and nurture during infancy and early childhood by Robert Plomin( Book )
20 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and held by 611 libraries worldwide
In light of work by quantitative geneticists, the authors reconsider the interaction of heredity and environment in the development of individual differences during infancy and early childhood. Quantitative genetics offers a general theory of the development of individual differences that suggests novel concepts and research strategies: the idea that genetic influences operate in age-to-age change as well as in continuity, for example. Quantitative genetics also provides powerful methods to address questions of change and continuity which are helpfully introduced in this study. Longitudinal quantitative genetic research is essential to the understanding of developmental change and continuity. The largest and longes longitudinal adoption study is the Colorado Adoption Project, which has generated much of the rich data on the progress from infancy to early childhood on which the authors draw throughout the book
Nature and nurture during middle childhood by J. C DeFries( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 398 libraries worldwide
What are the origins of individual differences? Virtually no one studying human development today sees the nature/nurture question as an either-or one. However, very few developmental researchers as yet appreciate the extent to which it is now possible to map genetic influences in a range of domains from cognitive functioning to temperament all through the childhood years. (For example, although there is substantial genetic continuity for measures of general cognitive ability from infancy to early childhood, new genetic influences emerge to affect IQ in middle childhood, when specific cognitive abilities also begin to differentiate.) Even fewer developmental researchers appreciate the startling way in which expressions of the child's genetic endowment appear to affect what we have been accustomed to thinking of as stable environmental forces. In this book, three leading international authorities on behavior genetics and their collaborators present the most recent findings from the landmark Colorado Adoption Project. This first large-scale, longitudinal adoption study, launched in 1975, tracked the children, biological and adoptive parents, and home environments of 245 adoptive families and 245 matched non-adoptive families. Its design facilitated analyses of genetic and environmental influences on development of unparalleled scope and diversity - via both parent-offspring and sibling comparisons, and longitudinal and multivariate assessments. Following two introductory chapters, the authors focus successively on general and specific cognitive abilities, school achievement, language disorders, personality, stress, body size and obesity, motoric development, sex differences, competence, and family relationships. Before summarizing and concluding, they then turn to issues like the meaning of "shared" environment, the correlations and interactions between "nature" and "nurture," and the practical implications of the findings for adoption policy. Nature and Nurture During Middle Childhood will be crucial reading for every serious developmental researcher

The arts and sciences of criticism ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
"What can we expect of literature? And what should the role of criticism be? This collection reflects on developments in criticism and the different modes of knowledge that underwrite literature - a science model and its place in the university versus other ways of conceiving knowledge for which the arts have traditionally been seen as vehicles. Discussion ranges widely with contributions from outside the literary academy, including essays by the novelists Doris Lessing and David Lodge. All the essays are concerned with what literature, and therefore criticism, is or aims to be."--Jacket
