The World Rests on a Turtle, but on What Does that Turtle Rest? A Reply to Haier and Jung
Sternberg, Robert J.
Roeper Review, v30 n3 p196-198 Jul 2008
In this article, I consider three general issues raised by Haier and Jung (2008). First, I discuss the use of drugs for intellectual enhancement. Second, I reflect on prediction of performance based on biological measures. Third, I query whether biology can tell us what intelligence and creativity are. I conclude that biological assessments raise as many questions as they answer, but that some people may erroneously believe that they provide answers they are not ready to provide.
