Transactional Models of Intellectual Development, Yes. Deficit Models of Process Remediation, No.
Cecil R. Reynolds
The nature of intelligence continues to be a popular topic and is now undergoing anew revival of study in conjunction with the renewal of enthusiasm for research in the psychology of individual differences generally. The literature on the nature of intelligence continues to be vigorously reviewed; and, as Haywood and Switzky(1986) note, “We have not all reached the same conclusions.” The literature that most of us read, including Haywood, myself,and others such as Eysenck, Jensen, Hernstein, Tyler, Hunt, and Starr, is essentially the same literature; that we all reach different conclusions, and some quite disparate, is due in no small part to the complexity of the topic and moral,social, and political values that creep into the judgment of all scientists.
