Nature and Culture, Intelligence and Gender

Print Version August 26th, 2005

As if to illustrate my previous post I discovered this via Slashdot:

Richard Lynn, the emeritus professor of psychology at Ulster University, argues that men have larger brains and higher IQs than women, to such an extent that they are better suited to “tasks of high complexity”.

The professor has caused outrage in the past with claims that white people are more intelligent than blacks and that criminal traits are genetically inherited.

Now there’s a piece of research–no matter it’s merits or lack thereof–that blurs the lines between fact and value and poses questions about the relationship between nature and culture, science and society.
