HAT Forum: IQ

HAT Forum
Saturday, September 6, 11:00-1:00
519 Church St., Room 304

Proposed by Gary Higgins

0. Are IQs rising? falling?
1. Are intelligent people necessarily more socially conscious? better humanists?
2. Would it be desirable to artificially boost IQ or intelligence with eugenics, stem cell research, GMOs, drugs and chemicals, or mechanical devices?
3. Could advertising, television, and modern conveniences (i.e. computers and apps and devices) contribute to decreasing or increasing IQ?
4. Is consent required for IQ testing? Could a person, or the parent of a child, refuse permission for these tests? Who has access to these records?
