The Possibilities of Intelligence

From the August 28, 1965 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Intelligence is generally considered a private possession, sometimes inherited, sometimes cultivated through education and use, but always dependent upon the brain for normality. Intelligence has been described by mankind as the mental function of comprehending connections, as the cognition that accumulates knowledge, and as the ability to use proper means for accomplishing objectives.
