Description - The Development and Education of the Mind by Howard Gardner

American psychologist and educator Howard Gardner has assembled his most important writings about education. Spanning over thirty years, this collection reveals the thinking, the concepts, and the empirical research that have made Gardner one of the most respected and cited educational authorities of our time. Trained originally as a psychologist at Harvard University, Gardner begins with personal sketches and tributes to his major teachers and mentors. He then presents the work for which he is best known - the theory of multiple intelligences - including a summary of the original theory and accounts of how it has been updated over the years. Other seminal papers featured include: - education in the arts - the nature of understanding - powerful ways in which to assess learning - broad statements about the educational enterprise - how education is likely to evolve in the globalized world of the twenty-first century. This volume illustrates how a broad and generous psychological perspective, drawing on other disciplines, can bring powerful insights to the processes of education.
