Persson, Roland S. – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
To view contemporary Science as an industry is a very apt and timely stance. Ghassib's (2010) historical analysis of knowledge production, which he terms "A Productivist Industrial Model of Knowledge Production," is an interesting one. It is important, however, to observe that the outline of this model is based entirely on the production of…

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…

Mumford, Michael D.; Hester, Kimberly S.; Robledo, Issac C. – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
The need for creativity in the sciences has, from time to time, been questioned. Thus, Ghassib's (2010) argument that creativity is critical to performance in the sciences, and hence organizational effectiveness in a knowledge production economy, is important. Moreover, the proposition that scientific creativity is based on knowledge and…

VanTassel-Baska, Joyce – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
The Ghassib (2010) article is a wonderful thought piece to cause us to stop and think more about the creative enterprise, especially in science. It provides a strong argument for the importance of preparing future scientists well in the historical traditions of the discipline. By so doing, it challenges current societies to consider carefully how…

Runco, Mark A. – Gifted and Talented International, 2010
Ghassib (2010) presents a provocative view of science as industry. He ties science specifically to a "productivist" industrial model and to knowledge production. If judged based on what is explicit in this article, his theory is useful and logical. There are, however, several concerns as well. Some of these are implied by the title of his article,…
