Howard Gardner

Prince of Asturias Award for Social Sciences 2011

“I am thrilled and humbled to receive this prestigious award. While my training is primarily in psychology, I have always considered myself a social scientist, and I feel that much of the best work about human nature and human society draws on a range of social scientific disciplines.  Also, at this time the accent in Anglo-American social science falls almost entirely on quantitative work.  I am pleased that this award can recognize the strand of social science which involves qualitative analyses and broad syntheses of knowledge. I look forward eagerly to the ceremony in October, when I will have the chance to express my personal gratitude to representatives of the Foundation”.

Howard Gardner
Cambridge (Massachusetts), 11th May 2011

“Since we have begun to observe the world in a scientific way, reality has constantly shown itself to be much more complex than we believed it to be. That is why I am delighted with the recognition of Howard Gardner’s life’s work. He has systematically analysed, like no one else, the complexity of the workings of the human mind and has established the foundations for a new educational model that fosters the innate abilities of each individual”.
