During the academic year 1973-74 a group of Fellows of the American Academy organized a series of Seminars on Human Diversity: Its Causes and Social Significance. The relative role of genetics and the environment in determining human capacities and behavior has become a focal point of controversy in recent years, and it was the hope that private discussions among scholars with a wide variety of viewpoints and from a number of different disciplines could help to sort out some of the underlying scientific principles as well as illuminate the relationship between scientific findings and public policy debates. While no consensus was achieved, the aim of a rational and constructive discussion was realized, and the Academy has been urged to make the proceedings available to interested scholars. Accordingly, we wish to announce that copies of the proceedings of the Human Diversity seminars may be obtained from the Academy office at $4.00 each. Following is the Introduction to this volume prepared by Bernard D. Davis, Chairman of the Committee on Human Diversity, and the list of those who participated in these discussions.
