  • Description
  • Details

This is a handy compendium of many of Sternberg's most important and influential articles from his thirty-year career.

Robert J. Sternberg has argued that the conventional idea of intelligence is, at best, incomplete. Therefore, he has redefined the core concept of intelligence: Sternberg's groundbreaking, triarchic theory proposes that intelligence is measured not just by factual knowledge or "book smarts," but also by the integration of creative ability, practical know-how, and analytic reasoning.

Sternberg is the former President of the American Psychological Association, current Dean of Tufts University, and one of the top 100 psychologists of the 20th century, according to the APA Monitor on Psychology.

Sternberg has authored over 1,000 journal articles, book chapters, and books. This comprehensive collection compiles the best of Sternberg-his most influential, career-defining articles culled from over 30 years of research.

Serving as an introduction to and summary of his most critical contributions to the field, this book:
* Presents articles that track the development and progression of Sternberg's theory of successful intelligence
* Includes his most influential articles, such as "The nature of creativity" and "The Rainbow Project: Enhancing the SAT"
* Features articles on educational policy and how Sternberg's intelligence models can be used to improve student performance and supplement traditional exams
* Contains new articles on Sternberg's most recent theory, the Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, Synthesized (WICS) model
