Five Minds For The Future


Five Minds For The Future I thoroughly enjoyed this book. For those of you who are not familiar with him, Howard Garner is a cognitive psychologist from Harvard who is credited with originating the theory of multiple intelligences in his book Frames of Mind. In this new book he defines the five minds that will be necessary to thrive in our fast changing world:

The Disciplined Mind – Mastery of major schools of thought, the capability of applying oneself beyond formal education

The Synthesizing Mind – Selecting key information from copious amounts of information

The Creating Mind – Going beyond the boundaries of existing disciplines and asking new questions and offering new solutions.

The Respectful Mind – Recognizing differences in individuals and groups and learning to work with those differences.

The Ethical Mind – Striving toward good work and good citizenship

Vern,
Don't love the title but each of the different areas are interesting.

Which one area do you most identify with?
