In this book, Gardner argues in favour of the existence of multiple intelligences rather than one type of intelligence, i.e. general intelligence. We all are intelligent in our own ways, our existence proves it!
There is a cool statement: I was born intelligent but education made me dull. there is truth in it to large extent because we cannot really explore and play with our potential in a regular, mainstream educational settings. our education system cannot produce the real geniuses and tolerate the deviant talents. Stop mind control!!!!!!!
