There is more and more traffic at the junction of genomic and social sciences, creating a complex pattern of intersecting questions, studies, and research possibilities. And it is likely to become only heavier in the near future. What does this mean for such social sciences as psychology and education? This chapter explores these issues using the research on the genetic aetiology of reading ability and disability as an illustration.
