Summary: A path-breaking view of creativity, along with riveting portraits of seven figures who each reinvented an area of human endeavor. "A fascinating, ambitious, valuable map of modern creativity and the modern period. "

--Newsweek
Focusing on the moment of each creator's most significant breakthrough, Howard Gardner presents a fascinating look at the nature of genius as seen in the lives of Einstein, Freud, Eliot, Ghandhi, and other giants. Sixth printing. Howard Gardner changed the way we think about intelligence. In his classic work Frames of Mind, he undermined the common notion that intelligence is a single capacity that every human being possesses to a greater or lesser extent. Now building on the framework he developed for understanding intelligence, Gardner gives us a path breaking view of creativity, along with riveting portraits of seven figures who each reinvented an area of human endeavor.

He notes, for example, that it almost invariably takes ten years to make the initial creative breakthrough and another ten years for subsequent breakthroughs. Creative people feature unusual combinations of intelligence and personality, and Gardner delineates the indispensable role of the circumstances in which an individual works and the crucial reactions of the surrounding group of informed peers... ...show less
