Intelligence: Multiple Perspective – Gardner et al




Intelligence – Multiple Perspective
Howard Gardner, Mindy L. Kornhaber, Warren K. Wake 1996
Harcourt Brace College Publishers

‘In one volume we have surveyed the major approaches to intelligence that have evolved since the scientific study of intelligence began, a century ago.  We begin by considering conceptions of intelligence in different cultures and historical eras.  We then explore intelligence as it is usually conceived of – as a psychological and biological property of the individual. Next we present alternative concepts of intelligence.  Finally, we investigate intelligence as it plays out in broader contests, such as in the school and the workplace.’(Preface)

This is an introductory textbook on intelligence – a good basis for further study.
