This e-book demanding situations social scientists to think again the theoretical foundations of the research of social phenomena. in the past social scientists have assumed that various environmental elements clarify social phenomena and that there can't be any universal explanatory issue at the back of a number of social phenomena. although, the empirical proof provided during this booklet and masking approximately two hundred international locations exhibits that many forms of human stipulations rely considerably on variations in typical intelligence of countries (national IQs).

Differences in intelligence support to provide an explanation for every kind of phenotypic social phenomena in addition to the patience of social inequalities on the planet. Environmental elements affecting such phenomena fluctuate from case to case, yet intelligence reflecting the developed human variety is still an analogous explanatory issue throughout all phenotypic social phenomena. which means it offers a unifying theoretical build for the social sciences. regrettably social scientists haven't but discovered that almost all difficulties explored in social sciences are phenotypic phenomena reckoning on either genotypic and environmental components and that intelligence is a robust genotypic universal explanatory factor.

The arguments and hypotheses provided during this booklet are validated and supported by means of vast empirical proof. finally empirical proof will come to a decision the future of conflicting theoretical arguments.

Yet remarkably the prize was not awarded to Leo Tolstoy who did not die until 1910. 34) may be surprising low. One reason for this is that the nations of Northeast Asia (China, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong) have the highest IQs but win few Nobel Prizes. It has been proposed that the explanation for this is that the Northeast Asian peoples have lower creativity than the Europeans, who have won nearly all the Nobel prizes for science (Lynn, 2007). 61 between national IQs and the numbers of scientists and engineers working in research, per capita, based on 51 nations.
