Robbins, Derek 2006. Intelligence. in: Turner, B. (ed.) The Cambridge Dictionary of Sociology Cambridge Cambridge University Press pp.
An extract from The Cambridge Dictionary of Sociology which focuses on intelligence within a sociological context. It states that the acceptance that human behaviour can be modified by social interaction or ‘nurture’ rather than wholly determined by ‘nature’ is an essential assumption for sociological research. It explores the ways in which the debate about intelligence has provided a case study for the nature/nurture issue at significant moments in Western social history since 1869.
