The Mismeasure of Man Stephen Jay Gould
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company

The Mismeasure of Man, Stephen Jay Gould's masterful demolition of the IQ industry, should be required reading. Two major themes that I think are important in The Mismeasure of Man are: 1: Research is always conducted within a social context. September 5, 2007 presentation by Ralph Horwitz for the Stanford School of Medicine Medcast lecture series. When his analysis of the history of attempts to measure human intelligence, The Mismeasure of Man, was published (1981), it was an almost instant classic. Gould's brilliant, funny, engaging prose dissects the motivations behind those. The late Stephen Jay Gould, paleontologist and author of The Mismeasure of Man (1996), asserts that such resurgences are not mysterious nor predictably cyclical. Title: The Mismeasure of Man Rating: NC-17 Pairing: Erik/Charles Warning: None Word Count: 3985 Summary: 10 moments their lives fell together and came apart. The book “the mismeasure of man” chapters 3 and 4, Gould discusses further some of the ways that scientists have cheated either intentionally or unintentionally. Stephen Jay Gould claimed, first in Science in 1978 [1] and later in his book The Mismeasure of Man [2], that Samuel Morton fudged his data on skull volumes. In 1981 Gould wrote the classic book The Mismeasure of Man which utterly destroyed these arguments. The sad history of biologically based racism has been documented in many places, including Steve Gould's book The Mismeasure of Man (yes, I know it's flawed). That same refusal regularly distorts Gould's 1981 The Mismeasure of Man, now reissued in a "revised and expanded" edition (Norton, $13.95). But Gould was, first and foremost, a working scientist, a palaeontologist studying the fossil record of life on earth.
