In The Disciplined Mind, Howard Gardner, the brilliant educator who revolutionized our thinking with his theory of multiple intelligences, offers a controversial and far-reaching work on the goals of education. His argument -- aimed at parents, educators, and the general public alike -- is that K-12 education should enhance a deep understanding of three principles: truth, beauty, and goodness. Gardner explores how teaching students three subjects -- the theory of evolution, the music of Mozart, and the lessons of the Holocaust -- would illuminate the nature of truth, beauty, and morality.
Far from the fact-based, standardized-test mentality that has gripped both policy makers and the public, Gardner envisions an educational system that will help younger generations rise to the challenges of the future, while preserving the traditional goals of a "humane" education.
