Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed: Educating for the Virtues in the Age of Truthiness and Twitter Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From ancient times, philosophers, theologians, and artists have attempted to describe and categorize the defining virtues of civilization. In Truth, 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. Designed to appeal to a wide readership, Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed is an approachable primer on the foundations of ethics in the modern age.

Synopsis:

From one of the world's most influential public intellectuals, an elucidating primer on the foundations of ethics and virtue in the modern age.
