Critique of Scarr and Weinberg's IQ Adoption Study: Putting the Problem in Perspective
Plomin, Robert
Intelligence, 2, 1, 74-9, Jan-Mar 78
Scarr and Weinberg's results (Intelligence, 1977) are compared to those of similar adoption studies and found to be quite similar, despite the transracial adoption patterns in Scarr and Weinberg's sample. The author also suggests that the major contribution of behavioral genetics to psychology may be our increased understanding of the environment. (Author/BW)
