Description: Howard Gardner, a Harvard psychologist, won a MacArthur Foundation genius grant in 1981. In his 1983 book Frames of Mind Gardner attacks the notion of generalized intelligence, identifying instead seven intelligences or areas of intellectual competence. Intelligence according to Gardner, can be broken down into the following forms: Verbal/Linguistic, Logical/Mathematical, Visual/Spatial, Body/Kinesthetic, Music/Rhythmic, Interpersonal, and Intrapersonal. Summary prepared by Po-Ching Wang.
