Arthur R. Jensen on Science - Dictionary of Arguments
Slater I 121
Science/intelligence tests/Jensen: (Jensen 1969)(1) stated that he strongly disagreed with those who believe that science should be used to search for truth only in certain circumstances, implying that this was the reason for the dearth of discussion of the possibility of genetic determination of these racial test score differences (>Intelligence tests/Jensen). Apparently, the idea that discussion of this possibility had been suppressed because it was somehow socially inappropriate was to him a rationale that made it essential to develop and present the evidenciary basis for the possibility. >Intelligence/Jensen, >Racism/Jensen, >Heritability/Jensen.
