HOWARD GARDNER, Multiple Intelligences Theorist, Psychologist, and Jacob K. Javits Visiting Professor

In this inaugural lecture, Howard Gardner will describe the evolution of his own thinking over the last few decades. As a developmental and cognitive Psychologist with expertise in neuropsychology, Howard developed the theory of Multiple Intelligences in the early 1980s. The interest shown by educators in this work stimulated him to become involved in educational reform in the United States and Abroad. In more recent work, Howard has addressed issues of policy—effecting a transition in his scholarship from “how things are” to “How Things Ought to Be.” He will describe the five kinds of minds—disciplined, synthesizing, creating, respectful, and ethical—that need to be cultivated in the future.
