From ancient times, philosophers, theologians, and artists have attempted to describe and categorize the defining virtues of civilization. InTruth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed, renowned education authority Howard Gardner explores the meaning of the title's three virtues in an age when vast technological advancement and relativistic attitudes toward human nature have deeply shaken our moral worldview. His incisive examination reveals that although these concepts are changing faster than ever before, they are--and will remain, with our stewardship--cornerstones of our society.

Editorial Reviews

Alan Ryan, New York Review of Books“Howard Gardner may well be the best-known educational theorist in America.... Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed is an engaging mixture of philosophy, personal reflection, and moral exhortation; the philosophy is untechnical, the personal reflection is sympathetic, and it is hard to disagree with [Gardner's] insistence that we collectively need a clearer sense of how to balance the competing demands placed on all of us.... An extraordinary open-mindedness permeates his book; he is an anxious liberal, not a depressed academic conservative. He is as hostile to ‘mindless absolutism' as he is to ‘feckless cultural relativism,' and if this makes him hard to pin down, it also makes him easy to like.”
