Howard Gardner

Multiple Intelligences Translated from the English (United States) by Jean-Paul Mourlon with the collaboration of Sylvie Taussig. Publication date : April 1, 2006

What is intelligence ? A precise, measurable and well-defined faculty ? No, says Howard Gardner, there a many different kinds of intelligence constituting the unique cognitive profile of each individual. Research coming from neurobiology and his observations of children have permitted him to establish this theory and analyse its consequences in terms of development and education.This book has been received throughout the world as a major contribution to the field. The theory of multiple intelligences is currently applied in many schools. This book opens new horizons for those who believe that intelligence is a phenomenon far too complex to be measured by simple I.Q. texts and explores new ways of comprehending human nature.

Howard Gardner is a professor at Harvard University in the United States. He is the author of numerous successful works dealing with psychology and intelligence.
