In the Handbook of Understanding and Measuring Intelligence distinguished scholars Oliver Wilhelm and Randall W Engle have assembled a group of respected experts from two fields of intelligence research--cognition and methods - to summarize, review, and evaluate research in their areas of expertise. Each chapter presents the state-of-the-art in a particular domain of intelligence research, illustrating and highlighting important methodological considerations, theoretical claims, and pervasive problems in the field.

The Handbook is designed for academics and psychology professionals interested in intelligence, cognitive abilities, educational testing and measurement, reasoning and problem solving. It can also be used by advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying intelligence or the psychology of individual differences.

Review:

"This volume provides an in-depth yet accessible and up-to-date review of the key topics pertinent to current intelligence research. This state-of-the-art summary about our theoretical understanding of human abilities and their measurement is of interest for researchers, practitioners, and advanced students in psychology, education, and related disciplines. It's a great summary and a good read on a truly important topic."

(Dr. Heinz Holling 2004-06-23)

"Wilhelm and Engle have compiled a highly informative set of chapters on various topics related to intelligence. The chapters describing recent European work will be especially informative for North American readers. The work is strengthened by provision of review chapters that keep the reader in sight of the forest rather than the trees."

(Earl Hunt 2004-06-23)

"...it is extremely useful and contemporary, covering among its five hundred pages, genetics, neuro-imaging and emotional intelligence.  It also provides a good indicator of current psychological work in the area with empirical evidence and theory sitting alongside each other.  The material on meta-cognition would, I suspect, be of most interest to philosophers, along with the more basic questions concerning the nature of memory and intelligence."

―PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY (Robert G. Hill 2008-04-21)

About the Author:

Oliver Wilhelm, Ph.D., is Professor of Psychology at Humboldt-University Berlin, Germany. He earned his doctoral degree in 2000 from the Universeity of Mannheim and subsequently worked at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, and at the University of Arizona in Tucson.  His research focuses on individual differences in working memory, reasoning, and mental speed.  Additional research interests are in intellectual engagement, openness for new experiences, and cognitive failures and how these traits relate to various abilities.  He is also doing experimental work on deductive reasoning and working memory.



Randall W. Engle received his Ph.D. in 1973 from Ohio State University, where his mentor was D.D. Wickens.  Following a 21 year tenure at the University of South Carolina, he moved to Atlanta, where he took the position of Professor and Chair of the School of Psychology at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  He has published numerous papers and book chapters exploring the properties of attention and working memory capacity and their relationship to intelligence.  Together with faculty colleagues across the globe, the Engle team, including former doctoral students and post docs, continues to pursue the nature of working memory capacity using micro-analytic experimental studies and macro-analytic factor analysis studies.
