Ms Hodges,

You recently wrote to the pcp list (and radical-psychology-network) of your
work on "intelligence fictions, and how they are passed on in different
communities, particularly professional communities like universities, and
teacher-training programs." I would like to know more about your topic and
your work on it. Can you tell me more about what you mean by an "intelligence
fiction"? Is your work based on strict social constructionist premises, e.g.,
is it possible to provide a thesis about the nature of intelligence that is
not a "fiction"?
