Creativity, Wisdom, and Trusteeship by Anna Craft

Book Description

Creativity and wisdom as fields of scholarship and as they relate to classroom practice are the focus of this important new volume from Anna Craft, Howard Gardner, Guy Claxton, and their coauthors Mihaly Csikzsentmihalyi, William Damon, David Henry Feldman, Helen Haste, David Perkins, Dean Keith Simonton, Robert Sternberg, and others. This distinguished group of educators and scholars examine the topic within its social and cultural context; within the context of cognitive psychology and the neurosciences; and within the context of what it means to do work that is both excellent and ethical within the professions, most importantly as educators. This thought-provoking volume will be essential reading for all members of the educational community in the US, the UK, and elsewhere.
