Book Reviews Article: A Biographical Appraisal of Arthur Jensen

Leslie C. Jones

Published: 2003/06/01

Abstract

Currently completing a book on mental chronometry, Professor Jensen has postponed writing his autobiography until his old, old age when those who might otherwise be offended by his reminiscences will be long gone (personal communication). Judging by his remarks about Margaret Mead in these conversations, this was a politic decision. In the meantime, those who are interested in Jensen's research and its origins will find some useful clues as to the man's personality in Intelligence, Race, and Genetics.
