Creativity in Science and Science Education: A response to Ghassib

Newton, L.D.



Ghassib's (2010) paper is an interesting historical and philosophical discussion on the topic of knowledge production and a productivist industrial model in science. As I see it from the point of view of education, a weakness of the paper relates to the lack of discussion of the notion of creativity in science. The title includes the word 'creativity' and yet he does not explicitly address the nature of creativity in science, its relevance to science education or the teaching of gifted and talented children. To have done so may have made his account more relevant to this journal's readers.
