Harvard Book Store is very pleased to welcome Harvard Graduate School of Education professor HOWARD GARDNER for a discussion of his newest book, Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed: Educating for the Virtues in the Twenty-First Century.
From ancient times, philosophers, theologians, and artists have attempted to describe and categorize the defining virtues of civilization. In Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed, 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 examination reveals that although these concepts are changing faster than ever before, they are—and will remain, with our stewardship—cornerstones of our society.
