Note: At one time, this topic was covered in an undergraduate seminar (PSY 430) taught at the University of Toronto. While this particular course is no longer being offered, much of the material from the readings, lectures, and discussions is included here for those interested in the topic. The “webcourse” consists of five sections, two of which are available now. The remaining sections will be added soon.

I. Introduction to the study of exceptional performance
II. Creative Genius
III. Expertise
IV. Talent
V. Summary, conclusions, and future directions
