Multiple Intelligences — Howard Gardner’s point of view

  • Consider for a moment, a master sailor from Polynesia 4,000 years ago, who possessed knowledge of sailing, stars and geography and combined all this knowledge to sail towards hundreds of discovered islands & held a vision of discovering the unknown. Of course, the master sailor in consideration was highly competent in his own field. Would you expect any type of unintelligent behavior from him?
  • Similarly, Robert Lee Frost, a famous American poet, had deep understanding of the nature which was reflected in his poetry in the form of brilliant monologues and dramatic scenes, so his understanding of the nature & usage of language to express it was an unintelligent effort?
  • Consider additionally, philosophers, religious & spiritual leaders, psychologists all work to transform lives of individuals, remove illusion of problems & lead people towards a life of optimism. Is their positive contribution towards the lives of others less valuable than that of a mathematician?
