Elsbeth  Stern, Aljoscha  Neubauer - Intelligence – Big differences and where they take us


The latest book by the acclaimed intelligence researchers

The degree to which intelligence is inherited is often at the centre of heated public debate. From a scientific point of view, however, it is a clear-cut case: there are differences and our genes our behind them. The potential each one of us is endowed with, however, can only fully come into play if it is furthered in the family and at school.

In their latest book, Elsbeth Stern and Aljoscha Neubauer explain how differences in intelligence and talents come about, and they describe how intelligence can be measured, how above-average intelligence can be recognised, and how intelligence can be furthered. They make one thing clear: intelligence is an individual resource that can only be developed in the community. And – our society needs intelligence more than ever before!

"This book… describes our intellectual abilities how they truly are. Soberly and clearly, based on the latest studies, without anecdotes, personal stories, palatable theories or promises … In a composed but definite way, the authors confront the numerous myths about this subject that are coursing through society, but which are refuted by science."
