This commentary takes issue with two of Rose’s central themes from the perspective of the psychology of intelligence. In the case of reductionism, I argue that Rose fails to live up to his own rhetoric by claiming a veto from his own discipline (biology) over facts of the matter in another (psychology). In the case of “Lifelines,” Rose’s argument is contradicted by evidence from both individual differences and developmental change in intelligence.
