This article presents one of the possible reasons for the absence of a unified theory of giftedness. The state of the Psychology-accumulated knowledge of giftedness is assessed through the spectacle of the general methodology of the science. The thesis being defended lies in the fact that as its paradigm Psychology uses the already-present, external paradigm, which is of a non-specific, social and cultural origin. And the confirmation of this thesis is the existence of the concept of giftedness.
