Description

A very short introduction to...intelligence.
Edinburgh International Science Festival event at Summerhall. Audience - 56 members of general public.
CCACE Director Ian Deary had a sell-out show at the Edinburgh International Science Festival on 11th April. It was based on his Oxford University Press book, Intelligence: A Very Short Introduction. Ian took an unusual approach: “I divided the show into ten 5-minute segments. Each segment showed the audience a major database and result on an important topic to do with intelligence, such as education, death, sex differences, genetics, ageing and so on. There was lively discussion with the audience within each segment.”
