The essays comprising this book written by a wide variety of influential theorists and educators address several vital issues in the acceptance and implementation of the MI idea: Are there convincing arguments and evidence supporting the validity of the eight intelligences? Is MI truly a “scientific theory” that will survive the test of time? What is the impact and contribution of MI theory to classroom practice and school design / reform? What are the cultural barriers and implications for MI-inspired educational practices and research initiatives? Does an MI perspective make positive contributions to an individual’s education, self-worth, career development and community integration? How does MI comport with the long established notion of “g”, unitary intelligence, as embodied in an IQ score and that forms the foundation of the modern educational edifice?
