Multiple Intelligences : New Horizons in Theory and Practice
Howard Gardner's brilliant conception of individual competence has changed the face of education in the twenty-three years since the publication of his classic work, Frames of Mind . Since then thousands of educators, parents, and researchers have explored the practical implications and applications of Multiple Intelligences theory- the powerfulnotion that there are separate human capacities, ranging from musical intelligence to the intelligence involved in self-understanding. The first decade of research on MI theory and practice was reported in the 1993 edition of Multiple Intelligences . This new edition covers all developments since then and stands as the most thorough and up-to-date account of MI available anywhere. Completely revised throughout, it features new material on global applications and on MI in the workplace, an assessment of MI practice in the current conservative educational climate, new evidence about brain functioning, and much more.

"Whenever Howard Gardner focuses his synthesizing mind and vast erudition on any topic, we can be sure that an exciting intellectual adventure is in store. If his manifesto were heeded, the future of our children would benefit immensely."-Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
"For those of us who suspect that intelligence is too complex a phenomenon to be measured by the single number of Q.Q. derived from an 'intelligence test, ' Gardner's book is a refreshing experience and an open door into a whole new way of looking at human beings."--Isaac Asimov "Whenever Howard Gardner focuses his synthesizing mind and vast erudition on any topic, we can be sure that an exciting intellectual adventure is in store. If his manifesto were heeded, the future of our children would benefit immensely."--Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi "Were we to apply even a fraction of the knowledge Gardner marshals for us, education might finally lead to the deeper understanding that should be its primary goal."--Rexford Brown
