Talents Unfolding: Cognition and Development
Talents Unfolding sheds new light on the developmental aspects of giftedness and exceptional performance—insights that inform the encouragement of talents in so-called "normal" individuals as well. This book provides a refreshing look at ability that extends the debate about giftedness far beyond the contours of IQ and into the realm of multiple intelligences and their environmental context. Contributors examine the nature of creativity and domain-specific expertise (e.g., social giftedness, visual arts) to determine how talent can be nurtured, educated, and developed. A must read for developmental, social, school, and educational psychologists.
