Book description

Written by the foremost experts in human intelligence. It not only includes traditional topics, such as the nature, measurement, and development of intelligence, but also contemporary research into intelligence and video games, collective intelligence, emotional intelligence, and leadership intelligence. In an area of study that has been fraught with ideological differences, this Handbook provides scientifically balanced and objective chapters covering a wide range of topics. It does not shy away from material that historically has been emotionally charged and sometimes covered in biased ways, such as intellectual disability, race and intelligence, culture and intelligence, and intelligence testing. The overview provided by this two-volume set leaves virtually no area of intelligence research uncovered, making it an ideal resource for undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals looking for a refresher or a summary of the new developments.


‘This Handbook is the ultimate collection of chapters needed by everyone who is interested in intelligence. It's exciting to see how the field has developed from the first to the second edition!'

Joachim Funke - Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Germany

‘The definition, scope, and operation of intelligence is central to the field of psychology and no topic has been more controversial. This Handbook, ably edited by Robert J. Sternberg, is comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date, and admirably balanced.'

Howard Gardner - John H. and Elisabeth A. Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education

‘Robert J. Sternberg has assembled the ideal people to cover the field of intelligence at the highest level of expertise. This Handbook is destined to remain the definitive source for information about the field for a long time.'

Richard E. Nisbett - Theodore M. Newcomb Distinguished University Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan
