The Mismeasure of Man

By Gould, Steven Jay

First edition, first printing of one of Gould's most famous and controversial books. Here he analyses craniometry and IQ testing to point out the unconscious biases and a priori assumptions built into much "scientific" research. Researchers recently made the case that Gould was incorrect about one aspect of the book's argument, it still stands as an important indictment of biological determinism and a lucid reminder that those engaged in research of any type must be aware of their own privilege and biases. A superb copy, rare to find this book. This book is an excellent and crisp copy.
