The purpose of this book is to provide a widely accessible introduction to the topic of human intelligence, while addressing the complicated answers to the following questions: is intelligence one general trait or a host of multi-faceted abilities? Are racial and socioeconomic differences in intelligence evidence of nature or nurture effects? Is intelligence organic or immutable? Plucker also covers a wide range of issues related to intelligence, including the nature versus nurture debate, giftedness and multipotentiality, common beliefs about intelligence, and future directions for intelligence research.
