Reading Eric Turkheimer’s CV gives me the uncomfortable feeling that I’ve fallen behind the research frontier in behavioral genetics. Just in the last few years, he’s published dozens of careful papers (almost all available ungated from his webpage) that challenge the hardline Harris/Pinker view that genes are virtually the sole cause of family resemblance. Topics include marital instability, harsh punishment, and of course IQ. I’ll probably be reading these papers for the next few weeks.
