Book review: ‘The Mismeasure of Man’ by Stephen Jay Gould

Why intelligence testing is stupid.

The Mismeasure of ManA marvellous book by a brilliant author. It systematically demolishes the entire concept of intelligence tests, showing how they are both unreliable and culturally biased. Highly recommended.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
