Abstract:

"This book attempts to sketch the background of the more recent developments in the testing of intelligence. It would be difficult to discuss a component or aspect of human nature and conduct as important as is intelligence without taking some account of the homo sapiens, or stultus, in his totality, of his upbringing, and of his relations with others of his species. Far from attempting in the present instance to view the subject narrowly, the author has welcomed the opportunity, which the invitation to write the following chapters afforded, to approach some of the problems of the individual in relation to school and society from a fresh angle. For, as it seems to him, the procedures developed in the testing of intelligence and the findings which have been made with the aid of the tests are sufficiently novel and definitive, as compared with the older methods and results, to warrant a canvassing of their significance and implications. At the same time, he believes that the tests and the suppositions which underlie them are in need, especially in view of the wide use of the tests and of various misconceptions which have arisen, of critical examination. The tests are by no means perfect instruments. They have aided in the meeting of some problems; they have not advanced the solution of others, but have merely revived or thinly disguised them in new settings"--Preface.
