Garces-Bacsal, Rhoda Myra – Gifted and Talented International, 2012
Roland S. Persson's (2012a) piece is extremely comprehensive, timely and very relevant especially in light of a growing appreciation of cultural diversity and the emergence of a global community--which is an inevitable offshoot of globalisation that goes beyond world economy and international markets. It covers multiple themes; ranging from…

Sisk, Dorothy A. – Gifted and Talented International, 2012
Roland S. Persson's (2012a) article addresses a concern that many educators have stressed in their theoretical models, namely the importance of the interaction between the individual and the environment, and the impact of culture on not only values and beliefs, but on behaviour. As Persson (2012a) points out these models all have merit, but he…

Mazzoli Smith, L.; Campbell, R. J. – Gifted and Talented International, 2012
This commentary addresses the analysis in Persson's (2012a) article. According to the authors, the agenda for change amongst scholars has four productive proposals. These are: (1) that scholars should broaden their disciplinary outlook beyond psychology and education; (2) that they should eschew policy borrowing; (3) that they should clarify, for…

Ghassib, Hisham B. – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
The basic premise of this paper is the fact that science has become a major industry: the knowledge industry. The paper throws some light on the reasons for the transformation of science from a limited, constrained and marginal craft into a major industry. It, then, presents a productivist industrial model of knowledge production, which shows its…

Persson, Roland S. – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
To view contemporary Science as an industry is a very apt and timely stance. Ghassib's (2010) historical analysis of knowledge production, which he terms "A Productivist Industrial Model of Knowledge Production," is an interesting one. It is important, however, to observe that the outline of this model is based entirely on the production of…

Ambrose, Don – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
It was refreshing to read Hisham Ghassib's (2010) article outlining his model of scientific knowledge production. Too few scholarly writings in creative studies and gifted education deal with issues at the large-scale, panoramic level of analysis. Ghassib (2010) would not disappoint Albert Einstein who lamented that "I have little patience with…

Martin, Lee – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
The history of science presented by Hisham B. Ghassib (2010) on his article, "Where Does Creativity Fit into a Productivist Industrial Model of Knowledge Production?," reveals the significance of knowledge generating action throughout human history. Ghassib's (2010) paper explores the embedded nature of scientific practise and in doing so offers…

Runco, Mark A. – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
Ghassib (2010) presents a provocative view of science as industry. He ties science specifically to a "productivist" industrial model and to knowledge production. If judged based on what is explicit in this article, his theory is useful and logical. There are, however, several concerns as well. Some of these are implied by the title of his article,…

Van der Meer, Han – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
This article presents the author's response to Hisham B. Ghassib's (2010) article entitled "Where Does Creativity Fit into a Productivist Industrial Model of Knowledge Production?" When the author tries to characterise Ghassib's (2010) world, three words come into mind: University, Scientific Knowledge, and Marx. The author's world on the other…

Sharma, Jyoti – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
There is clear research-based evidence suggesting the mathematical gifts of children are not appropriately nurtured. Practices associated with the standard core curriculum renders them frustrated and bored. This paper represents an attempt to echo the voices of these children in order for their needs to be more properly met. It is based on a…
