Cognitive Variations

This chapter reviews some of the topics discussed in the preceding chapters. It argues that evidence serves to refute the idea that what is common in human cognitive faculties falls to the side of biology or neurophysiology, while diversity is a matter of culture. This straightforward correlation fails because the commonalities include not just biological data, but also the fact that we all become socially acculturated and have the capacity to learn a language. Conversely, the diversities that affect different individuals and groups stem from biological and neurological, as well as cultural, factors.
