The article discusses the effects of Howard Gardner's book "Frames of Mind: Theory of Multiple Intelligences," on education in the United States. The view of intelligence as biological in nature and capable of evolution has fostered a belief in teachers that every student has a unique potential that makes them "unlimited human beings." While tests have been conducted to refute this, no scientist has ever found a limit to human potential, revealing the true benefits of a belief in Gardner's philosophy.
