  • Dr. Meriem Kaddouri


This paper is a proposal for a diverse discussion from a social science perspective on the subject of education directed to the talent category, based on the assumption that this category as a social group has a distinct performance that must be developed, although the classic theses such as Grace and Lewellyn (1963) were She considered “talent” to refer to “a child’s present or past performance, not to their future potential (which may hold little or no promise), but despite this perspective, today it is undeniable that there is a need for schools that value the uniqueness and talent in all children and respect and nurture talent wherever it is found, The gifted child/student is ahead of his peers/colleagues because he learns more quickly from experience and puts his knowledge to work. The gifted is often considered practical with his information, even if it is limited, and he needs the availability of methodologies, tools, knowledge and environments that help in growth, development and refinement, and there are many examples of that.Among what is presented in this paper for discussion is what is related to multidisciplinary research, which had another word, other than the limited classical proposition, since during the analysis of the topic of talents and education for the distinguished and talented, the idea of ​​moving from the minute levels within the individual (organic, cellular, neurological, that stem from analyzes and studies of neurosciences, molecular biology, perhaps physics, etc., and even what is related to intelligence and its tests, to levels external to the individual related to him as a psychological and social structure and the impact of societal, cultural, political and legislative environments...etc.This position, in which we find diverse social and human sciences, makes this transition in analysis between levels make a significant contribution to understanding the nature and differences of talent and talent development on the one hand, and also the ability to explore the contextual social and economic influences on gifted minds.
