Might we adopt the learning-related account instead of the talent account?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (3):416-417 (1998)
Although Howe et al.'s survey shows little evidence for the talent account, it is premature to conclude that individual differences in achievement can be attributed largely to training and early experience. Moreover, such an empiricist account has problematic social implications, especially in cultures in which effort is emphasized. The aptitude account is thus proposed as a third alternative.
