    schema:reviewBody ""The Child's Conception of Physical Causality, part of the very beginning of the ground-breaking work of the Swiss naturalist Jean Piaget, is filled with creative experimental ideas for probing the most sophisticated ways of thinking in children. The strength of Piaget's research is evident in this collection of empirical data, systematically organized by tasks that illuminate how things work. In his new introduction, Jaan Valsiner observes that Piaget had no grand theoretical aims, yet the book's simple power cannot be ignored. Piaget's contribution to developmental psychology was his "clinical method"--A tactic that integrated relevant aspects on naturalistic experiment, interview, and observation. Through this systematic inquiry, we gain insight into children's thinking."--Jacket." ;
