The Development of Intelligence is an attempt to influence the next generation who will research the central question of this book - what is the nature of intelligence and how does it develop? The book provides a contemporary review of methods and theories of the development of intellectual abilities from infancy to adulthood by the major researchers in the field. It is unusual, because edited books usually bring together a collection of researchers who publish in the same journals, attend the same conferences and so on. In this case, the contributors come from quite different research areas with different approaches. The editor deliberately selected a group of eminent researchers with diverse and often conflicting theoretical orientations who use a wide range of different research methodologies. Consequently, there is coverage of a range of topics not usually found in a single book, including: the measurement of intelligence; infancy predictors of later IQ differences; developmental behaviour genetics; theories of cognitive change; general intelligence and specific abilities; multiple intelligences; savant syndrome; cognitive development in the intellectually disabled; and intervention studies. A concluding chapter by the editor pulls together the main themes generated by the contributors and sets out a new research agenda for developmental studies of intellectual abilities.
