Freelance researcher and writer Dr. Edward Dutton joins Henrik to talk about his book “At Our Wits' End: Why We're Becoming Less Intelligent and What it Means for the Future.” We discuss why people are becoming less intelligent and the cyclical collapse of civilization as a consequence of “progress.” Dutton was born in London in 1980, he lives in Finland and is Adjunct Professor of the Anthropology of Religion at Oulu University. Dutton was educated at Durham University, where he graduated in Theology in 2002, and Aberdeen University, from which he received his PhD in Religious Studies in 2006. #Intelligence #Civilization #Collapse

 

About the book-

At Our Wits' End: Why We're Becoming Less Intelligent and What it Means for the Future by Edward Dutton  (Author), Michael A. Woodley of Menie Yr. (Author)

We are becoming less intelligent. This is the shocking yet fascinating message of At Our Wits' End. The authors take us on a journey through the growing body of evidence that we are significantly less intelligent now than we were a hundred years ago. The research proving this is, at once, profoundly thought-provoking, highly controversial, and it’s currently only read by academics. But the authors are passionate that it cannot remain ensconced in the ivory tower any longer. With At Our Wits’ End, they present the first ever popular scientific book on this crucially important issue. They prove that intelligence ― which is strongly genetic ― was increasing up until the breakthrough of the Industrial Revolution, because we were subject to the rigors of Darwinian Selection, meaning that lots of surviving children was the preserve of the cleverest. But since then, they show, intelligence has gone into rapid decline, because large families are increasingly the preserve of the least intelligent. The book explores how this change has occurred and, crucially, what its consequences will be for the future. Can we find a way of reversing the decline of our IQ? Or will we witness the collapse of civilization and the rise of a new Dark Age?
