The Symbolic Role of Eminence in the Education of Gifted Students.
Howley, Aimee
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v10 n2 p115-24 Win 1987
The article compares the place of "eminence" versus "famous" and "renowned" in the culture and educational system and concludes that public gifted education often stresses the practical functions leading to "fame" as opposed to the less rewarded visual/performing arts and theoretical sciences that lead to "eminence."
