Nations differ substantially in terms of wealth, democratic rights, and citizen well-being. These gaps are typically clear, and one can easily predict people's aspirations and requirements by monitoring the flow of immigration. But why are there such big variances in educational attainment, implying differences in cognitive ability? What role do they play in the economic, political, and cultural growth of a country? Researchers from the fields of economics, psychology, sociology, evolution, and cultural studies have all attempted to resolve these vexing questions.
Heiner Rindermann proposes a novel model in this book: the creation of a burgher-civic world, aided by long-term background conditions, advanced education and thought. The burgher-civic world sparked a reciprocal development that transformed society and culture, resulting in inequalities in cognitive capital and wealth in the past and present.
This is an essential text for graduate students and researchers in economics, psychology, sociology, and political science, as well as those interested in economic growth, human capital formation, and cognitive development.
Heiner Rindermann is a German educational psychologist and researcher.
