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…

For the last quarter century the author's professional interest has been almost exclusively the population of highly able, gifted and talented children and young people.

Newton, Lynn D. – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
Ghassib's (2010) paper is an interesting historical and philosophical discussion on the topic of knowledge production and a productivist industrial model in science.
