Alfred Binet

a.k.a. Alfredo Binetti

Author Code: FABT

Born: Jul. 8, 1857 - Nice, France

Died: Oct. 18, 1911 - Paris, France

Educated in law in Paris, Binet also studied natural sciences at the Sorbonne. After coming into contact with Charcot's work on hypnosis, Binet abandoned his law career and began to study medicine at the Saltpetriere Hospital in Paris under the auspices of Charcot. He eventually received his doctorate and continued at the hospital for seven years. In 1891 he began working as a research assistant in a Sorbonne laboratory and the following year was promoted to assistant director. From 1895 to his death in 1911, he was the director of the Laboratory of Physiological Psychology at the Sorbonne. Together with Theodore Simon, one of his brightest students, Binet developed the first intelligence test, initially known as the Binet test, it is now simply referred to as the IQ test. Binet and Simon would collaborate on numerous experiments and projects over the years. Binet founded the Annee Psychologique journal in 1895 and in which many of his research articles were subsequently published. In 1899, Binet was made a member of the Free Society for the Psychological Study of the Child and in 1903, he published Experimental Studies of Intelligence. Binet was a prolific writer and produced hundreds of articles and books which included The Psychology of Reasoning Based on Experimental Researches in Hypnotism (1886), Animal Magnetism (1887), Alterations of Personality (1892), On Double Consciousness (1896), The Mind and the Brain (1905) and The Intelligence of the Feeble-Minded (1909).
