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.

    Jensen was a true social scientist. I think the social sciences require researchers that are even more committed to precision and intellectual honesty, but in most cases they are much less so than in the natural sciences. A lot of people like he and Rushton got in to trouble just because they were following where the research led them. They had no political mission at all and had no idea what a mess they were walking into.
