1. Theory of intelligence
This second book on the Global Cognitive Theory refers to the different meanings of the word intelligence, and it defines the elegant intelligence as an active subject of knowledge management or popular concept of intelligence; this is, without pseudo-scientific refinements whose only aim is to deny the existence of said brain capacity.
We call them pseudo-scientists because it is evident that this mentioned capacity exists and following Galileo's scientific method or, if preferred, the Veus vei method discoursed in Global Scientific Method, it is not necessary to demonstrate what is obvious; besides, sometimes it is not even possible to do so.
The introduction of the first book on the Global Cognitive Theory, The Human Brain and Computers, discusses the general context of the books about evolution and cognitive psychology in Molwickpedia.
Also, in the section called Global Cognitive Theory of the book The Human Brain and Computers, we can find a summary of the four books that make it up. Besides, it mentions the experimental psychology studies related to the said theory.
Chapter II of this book about the theory of intelligence, intuition, and creativity tries, on the one hand, to criticize the multiple concepts associated with the word intelligence, like the concepts of Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences and Daniel Goleman’s emotional intelligence. On the other hand, it also establishes the essence of the popular concept of normal or general intelligence.
Within the different existing concepts in the theory of intelligence, we consider the capacity for making abstract relations the most appropriate definition.
A deepening of the theory of intelligence and the knowledge about the conditions and mechanisms of these brain functions will lead us to the definition of conditional intelligence. A significant case would be the reliable answers from the manager of said capacities.
These clarifications allow us to approach the concepts of intelligence in a strict sense or G factor and discuss some particularities about the male and female brain. The whole cognitive manager would be, for obvious reasons, an elegant intelligence.
Chapter III focuses on the most relevant types of operational conditions regarding the reliability and speed of the answers obtained by the intelligence manager. It is worth pointing out that due to the context of the Global Cognitive Theory, this analysis of the theory of intelligence is innovative.
Firstly, the automatic answers would be found, such as preconceptions or emotions, since, due to their nature, they must be answers of the unconscious.
In the second place, completely safe functions have been included, such as logical inference or the so-called mathematical memory.
After that, with lower requirements of reliability, we would come across intuition and standard memory.
Then, an approximation to the unique cases of language and creativity is carried out, emphasizing the impressive speed as well as the reliability, which is not very high for the language; and regarding creativity, its complexity and powerful relational functions.
The mentioned context of the Global Cognitive Theory relates to the evolutionary psychology and, more specifically, the General Theory of Conditional Evolution of Life.
Chapter IV examines the effects of inheritance and environment within the theory of intelligence.
In the first part, there is a review of the studies on the genetic inheritance of intelligence and its interpretation in favor of the Global Cognitive Theory. This section also includes two possible methods of intelligence improvement procedures using genetic engineering.
The second block of ideas refers to the philosophical or sociological motivations opposed to the genetic influence on intelligence. Those ideas sometimes even deny the very concept of intelligence.
We admit the problems and complexity of intelligence tests in chapter IV. However, going to the moon was more difficult and, curiously, only some lunatics deny that humankind has been there.
Another section explains the experimental research difficulties in the theory of intelligence, especially the shortage of data source. These limitations are so severe that we can only understand them thanks to the social sensitivity that a significant scientific rigor might entail.
Finally, chapter V exposes the traffic light metaphor as an example of multiple concepts regarding the kindness of a car, showing the enormous complexity of possible routes, conditions and times; and simultaneously, the grand simplicity of quality indicators when we do not use the same words for different concepts.
