The theory of multiple intelligences is a theory of intelligence that affords specific modalities as opposed to seeing intelligence as dominated by a single general ability. This model was proposed by Howard Gardner in his 1983 book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences. In this interview, Gardner discusses the criteria for a behavior to be considered an intelligence. Howard Gardner is the John H. and Elisabeth A. Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
