Historical increases in expert performance suggest large possibilities for improvement of performance without implicating innate capacities

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (3):419-420 (1998)
Abstract
Innate talents supposedly limit an individual's highest attainable level of performance and the rate of skill acquisition. However, Howe et al. have not reviewed evidence that the level of expert performance has increased dramatically over the last few centuries. Those increases demonstrate that the highest levels of performance may be less constrained by innate capacities than is commonly believed.
