Howard Gardner on "The Mind Viewed as a Factor in Social Adjustments": 1919 Revisited
Lecture Thu 6 Dec 2001
In February 1919, in a campus of brownstones on West 23rd Street in Chelsea, a series of seven courses was offered to adults on the "the grave social, political, economic and educational problems of the day." The courses were an experiment in democracy and a new form of education: one that emphasized the collegiality and expansiveness in learning that led to the formation of The New School. On the occasion of welcoming New School's new president Bob Kerrey, this series is intended to remind the New School community of its historical legacies, and re-frame them for a new millennium.
