What is human intelligence? There is no indisputable answer to this fundamental question, and there will not be an attempt to define it here. How does one measure intelligence? There is little consensus here, either. Questions about defining and measuring human intelligence captivated ancient philosophers centuries ago, and they continue to intrigue researchers, clinicians, and students today. This long history and diversity of viewpoints poses special challenges to scholars and students who are attempting to sift through the research and commentary on intelligence theory and testing. This bibliography is designed to serve as a guide for students who are interested in learning about intelligence questions and controversies from the past, and for scholars who desire to take these questions and controversies in future directions. The aim is to offer a selective, balanced, and accessible guide to some of the best and most useful literature pertaining to human intelligence theory. Whenever possible, newer and cutting-edge publications have been included. However, classic and foundational works are also listed, as newer research necessarily builds on seminal ideas. This bibliography is not meant to be exhaustive, but is rather a starting place for beginning an investigation of particular topics. The resources here are merely scaffolding for building a comprehensive and nuanced understanding of intelligence theory and testing.
