Mind, Work, and Life

A Festschrift on the Occasion of Howard Gardner’s 70th Birthday

Howard Gardner, noted psychologist and educator, turned 70 in 2013. To commemorate this occasion, Mindy Kornhaber and Ellen Winner invited colleagues to contribute essays in Gardner’s honor. One hundred and sixteen scholarly colleagues—Gardner’s teachers, peers, fellow scholars, and former students—responded to this invitation. In essays that span the gamut from the arts and the brain, to intelligence, creativity, leadership, pedagogical theory, educational policy, ethics and ‘good work,’ the contributors react to Gardner’s work, describe their own lines of study, and in many cases comment on the deep, often decades-long relationships that they have had with Gardner. Upon reading this wide-ranging and remarkable collection, Gardner decided to respond to each of these essays in both a scholarly and a personal vein. Accordingly, Mind, Work, and Life is a unique record, spanning a half-century, of how scholars have communicated with one another—commencing in a pre-digital era and continuing in the age of the internet. And now, readers all over the world will have the opportunity not only to peruse this correspondence but also to exchange their own views in a variety of formats and on a range of platforms.
