Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed
Gardner (cognition and education, Harvard Graduate School of Education) is well-known for his work on multiple intelligences. Here, he traces changes in the Western classical virtues conceptions of truth, beauty, and goodness over the past 60 years, and describes new challenges in making sense of these virtues in an era of postmodernism and digital media. He gives suggestions for parents, teachers, and others who wish to educate for these virtues throughout the lifespan, both in and out of the classroom. According to the author, the book may be read "as a sustained argument against the hegemonies of biological determinism and economic determinism.
