J. P. Rushton, one of the foremost scientists in human behavior, has died on October 2nd. His contributions were many and expansive, particularly in the areas of altruism and genetic similarity, behavior and life history theory, and IQ and population, as Steve Sailer also discusses. For me, what was fascinating about Rushton—in addition to his... Read More
Steven Pinker, a great academic, and whose 2002 book The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature introduced me to hereditarian explanations for human behavior (and which is required reading for anyone with no familiarity with the role that genes play in human behavior) has recently sent a note to Ron Unz attacking his...

I have filled in the unemployment rates of the former Yugoslav... Read More
I had promised a couple of posts to bring those not necessarily familiar with HBD (i.e., Human BioDiversity) up to speed, but as I've not been getting around to those transitional posts, I've decided to skip that step and go on ahead. So here is my first semi-original contribution to the world of HBD. I'm... Read More
