Howard Gardner

2015 Laureate

John H. and Elisabeth A. Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education

Dr. Howard E. Gardner is an American developmental psychologist best known for his theory of multiple intelligences, as outlined in his book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences (1983).  Gardner’s theory has perhaps had the greatest impact within the field of education, where his conceptualization of intelligence as more than a single, solitary quality has opened the doors for further research and different ways of thinking about human intelligence.
