by David Hume

4.0 out of 5 stars Hume is just the best I think - you can hear his clarity undistorted ..., 15 May 2017

A classic, Hume is just the best I think - you can hear his clarity undistorted by time, a great idea or thought is like a lens who's flaws are amplified by the time - few flaws here.

The Mismeasure of Man
The Mismeasure of Man
by Stephen J Gould
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Why do smart people continue to have smart children?, 14 May 2017
This review is from: The Mismeasure of Man (Paperback)
A provocative book. In defence of the arguments presented in this book and in no way to claim that this book is perfect, but to cut through much of the noise, I recommend reading John Horgan's article in Scientific American 'Defending Stephen Jay Gould's Crusade against Biological Determinism'.

The vested interest Gould pointed to is an industry with its foot in the door of our educational institutions. The implications of their highly controversial positions are far from well proven - those academics who have spent their professional lives in a search for - g - a genetic basis for IQ, have been well funded but mired in frustration. While smart people continue to have smart children, the genetic polymorphisms implied by this heritability remain unclear, perhaps there are other reasons why smart people have smart children /shrug/.

5.0 out of 5 stars My review of the 'New Testiment', 2 July 2004
Beloved son dies tragically as a consequence of delivering vital news. Ironic twist ensures uplifting consequences for all concerned.
