The study establishes that at present the system of psychological knowledge about giftedness exists in the form of a concept, i.e. such a system of organizing knowledge that, unlike theory, does not claim to be absolute terminological rigor, logical consistency and completeness, reliability, and validity of all its provisions. To understand the system of psychological knowledge about giftedness, formalized in the form of a concept, the study attempts to develop the basic methodological principles for studying this concept, considers what the concept is as a form of knowledge organization, what its difference from other forms of knowledge organization, primarily from theory, is.
