Talent: Don't confuse necessity with sufficiency, or science with policy

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (3):430-431 (1998)
Abstract
Howe et al. fail to provide evidence that practice is sufficient and ignore evidence of high ability before instruction. They unsuccessfully discount savants; provide weak evidence against heritability of music, criticize retrospective evidence selectively, using it when it supports their position; and ultimately both accept and deny talent. Finally, they conflate a scientific question with one of policy.
