A transforming vision of human intelligence.
August 6, 2018

author: Michael Martinez
year published: 2013

Ever since Alfred Binet invented the first IQ test more than a century ago, we have thought of intelligence as fixed from birth and unalterable-as genetically programmed and immutable as eye color.
