State of the Art of Human Intelligence Research

Everyone seems to know what intelligence is. When trying to define the concept, however, it is rather difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is that makes people smart: the knowledge someone has in their specialty area? their encyclopedic, general knowledge about any topic? or the ability to learn and to adjust to new circumstances? In this lecture I will give a short overview of psychological research on intelligence, including definitions, theoretical accounts and empirical findings.
