Our sleeping intelligences

“At the christening of a long-wished-for princess, fairies invited as godmothers offered gifts, such as beauty, wit, and musical talent. However, a wicked fairy who had been overlooked placed the princess under an enchantment as her gift, saying that, on reaching adulthood, she would prick her finger on a spindle and die. A good fairy, though unable to completely reverse the spell, said that the princess would instead sleep for a hundred years, until awakened by the kiss of a prince.”

“Each person is a unique blend of dynamic intelligences which grow, expand and develop thoughout life” Gardner, H. Frames of Mind (Harvard, 1983).  We all have multiple-intelligences.

Let us visit the year 1859 and view the evidence of multiple intelligences through the eyes of the author Peter Macinnis, in his new book Mr Darwin’s Incredible Shrinking World.
