The Declaration of Independence states “all men are created equal”. but may I state with some reverence, it is “political/social hyperbole” [hyperbole= exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally].

Emotions are adaptive—in fact, they have a complexity born of a long evolutionary history—and although we conceive of emotions as feeling states, Robert Plutchik says the feeling state is part of a process involving both cognition and behavior and containing several feedback loops.”]  Gardner H., 1989, To Open Minds: Chinese clues to the dilemma of contemporary education p 96, New York: Basic Books About the Eight Multiple Intelligences, see next reference.  Weinreich-Haste, 1985, The varieties of intelligence: An interview with Howard Gardner,, New Ideas in Psychology, p. 48 “Many people look at the eight categories – particularly musical, spatial, and bodily kinesthetic -- and wonder why Howard Gardner insists on calling them intelligences, and not talents or aptitudes. Gardner realized that people are used to hearing expressions like ‘He’s not very intelligent, but he has a wonderful aptitude for music’; thus, he was quite conscious of his use of the word intelligence to describe each category. He said in an interview, ‘I’m deliberately being somewhat provocative. If I’d said that there’s seven kinds of competencies, people would yawn and say ‘Yeah, yeah’. But by calling them intelligences,’ I’m saying that we’ve tended to put on a pedestal one variety called intelligence, and there’s actually a plurality of them, and some are things we’ve never thought about as being intelligence’ at all’.”  Armstrong, Thomas, Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom, 2nd Ed., p. 3, Assoc. for Supervision and Curriculum Development, ISBN 0-87120-376 About the Eight Multiple Intelligences in the classroom.
