Eleven academics, all but one from the U.S., revisit Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences some 20 years after Gardner's text, Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, introduced the concept. While the authors respect Gardner and his continuing research, they feel it is time to evaluate the theory and to explore questions about the nature of the mind, self-production, intelligence, justice, power, teaching, and learning. An opening discussion of 21st century questions about MI is followed by chapters examining each of the eight intelligences and a section addressing various themes and issues.
