In 1986, Marian Van Court recorded three 90-minute tapes of an interview with Arthur Jensen (1923–2012), professor of educational psychology at the University of California at Berkeley. Topics discussed in this segment include:
Nature vs. nurture explanations of racial differences in intelligence
The influence of politics on the scientific study of race and intelligence
Eugenics and its prospects in the 21st century
The Flynn Effect (a trend toward higher IQ testing results over time) and its possible explanations
These interviews have never before been published. We will release them in six parts. If you wish to help us pay to have these interviews transcribed, please visit our Donations page today.
