Understanding Intelligence: What it is, Where it Comes from, and How it Changes
What is intelligence? Is it a function of nature or nurture? Is it a single dimension, or does it include multiple distinct abilities? And how does it change over time? This class describes cutting-edge psychology and neuroscience research that addresses these and other fascinating questions. Professor Sanderson will end this presentation by describing the link between intelligence and creativity, and the evidence for Albert Einstein’s view that “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination.”
Professor Sanderson is very enthusiastic in her presentations. I found it very engaging and learned about the topic of intelligence, and perhaps unlearned a few previously held ideas. My biggest takeaways are that they are several ways to define and measure intelligence.
