Developing Talent Across the Lifespan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This volume presents theoretical perspectives and empirical findings on the life-span development of talent. It show how talents are the result of the acquisition of a sequence of skills and how the acquisition of these skills is facilitated by changes in the individual's environment. It explores to what degree the development of top intelligence or achievement is similar to the development on specific domains such as personality, morality, painting, musical performance, or professional skills. The book also questions whether the development of talent observed for specific groups is similar to individual cases and how the different numbers of top talented women and men in several domains are to be explained. Important shifts are made away from traditional perspectives on the development of talent. Talents are no longer viewed as just a matter of stable individual differences in potential or performance and considerable efforts have been made to overcome the classical nature-nurture dichotomy. Instead, development of talents is currently examined in close relation to changing support, changing constraints and changing tasks.
