Five Minds for the Future

ISBN: 978-1-59139-912-4

Gardner argues about the complexity of education and how it is fundamentally about values. He draws out five minds to face the complex world: The disciplined mind; the synthesising mind; the creative mind; the respectful mind; and ethical mind. We are faced with challenges of speed and time, technology and different settings. We should therefore meet that challenge with engagement and not a compromise. The focus should not be on the prize, but think in the long run what kind of human beings we want to be and what kind of world we want to live in.
