Effects of Cultural Interventions on Educational Competencies: Intelligence Rediscovered. Contribution of Education to Cultural Development.
MacKinnon, A. R.
Massive cultural interventions that have occurred in the last 20 years have produced global intelligences whose characteristics transcend the cultural context. Global intelligences are communalities of competencies shared extensively among all world societies. This document presents a preliminary report on a study of global intelligences. Three general intelligences appear to occur on a global basis: (1) common language, in the form of a world English; (2) integrative intelligences, in which various cognitive and emotive competencies reunite in the educational process; and (3) newly rediscovered mythic intelligences, which may enable people to develop relationships among all living creatures, non-living things, and the planet itself. The massive efforts being made on a global scale to develop human intelligences in new and rediscoverd forms cannot be ignored. (SG)
