Discovering a Naturalistic Intelligence

According to Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, there are eight different types of intelligence. To say that one of them is more important than the others, or that one should define us all, would be a disservice to those whose strengths don’t lie in that singular intelligence. While not everyone can identify with “naturalistic intelligence,” there are many things we can learn from someone who does. Today, author Kem Luther explains how he came to explore his naturalistic intelligence and how he has applied it to his new book Boundary Layer.
