chapter  8
Refl ections and Conclusions
Pages 19

This chapter is a little more self-indulgent than the previous ones. In it, I shall outline what seem to me to be the most interesting and important issues to emerge from research into human intelligence, and muse about their implications. It basically tries to put the rest of the book in some perspective: the previous chapters have been quite heavily referenced and linked to empirical studies, and so having looked at the minutiae of modern research into g , it might be useful to step back a little and refl ect on what it all implies, what we do not know, and some practical applications of the theories developed above.
