Abstract

Robert Albert and Mark Runco, when investigating the history and research into creativity, assert that:

By the end of the eighteenth century, it was concluded that whereas many persons may have talent of one sort or another and that this talent would be responsive to education, original genius was truly exceptional and by definition was to be exempt from the rules, customs and obligations that applied to the talented. (Sternberg 1999, p. 21)
