The language and thought of the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

306 editions published between 1923 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 4,346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is for anyone who has ever wondered how a child develops language, thought, and knowledge. Before this classic appeared, little was known of the way children think. In 1923, however, Jean Piaget, the most important developmental psychologist of the twentieth century, took the psychological world by storm with The Language and Thought of the Child. Applying for the first time the insights of social psychology and psychoanalysis to the observation of children, he uncovered the ways in which a child actively constructs his or her understanding of the world through language. The book has since been a source of inspiration and guidance to generations of parents and teachers. While its conclusions remain contentious to this very day, few can deny the huge debt we owe to this pioneering work in our continuing attempts to understand the minds of the child -- publisher's description

Structuralism by Jean Piaget( Book )

260 editions published between 1858 and 2016 in 18 languages and held by 3,530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provided is an overview of the analytical method known as structuralism. The first chapter discusses the three key components of the concept of a structure: the view of a system as a whole instead of so many parts; the study of the transformations in the system; and the fact that these transformations never lead beyond the system but always engender elements that belong to it and preserve its laws. Subsequent chapters illustrate this concept as it appears in mathematics and logic (group theory, general algebra); physics and biology (structural models of causality, homeostasis); psychology (the laws of Gestalt, the structure of intelligence); linguistics (synchronics, generative grammars); social sciences (analytic, global and anthropological structuralism); and philosophy (dialectic, epistemology). In addition to his own work, Piaget explains and evaluates that of such figures as Nicholas Bourbaki, Noam Chomsky, Michel Foucault, Kurt Godel, Immanual Kant, Wolfgang Kohler, Claude Levi-Strauss, Karl Marx, Ferdinand de Saussure, and H. Sinclair de Zwaart. A final chapter summarizes the history and theses of structuralism, and estimates the future contribution of this method. (Mm)

The psychology of the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

45 editions published between 1969 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume we have tried to present, as briefly and as clearly as possible, a synthesis, or summing up, of our work in child psychology. A book such as this seemed to us particularly desirable since our published studies have been spread out over a number of volumes, some of them quite lengthy and some of them fairly difficult to read. This little book, of course, is not meant to be a substitute for reading the other volumes. But it represents, we believe, a useful introduction to the questions we have studied and will enable the reader to gain an adequate understanding of what we have learned in our investigation."--Jean Piaget (March 1969)
The child's conception of number by Jean Piaget( Book )

112 editions published between 1941 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the hypothesis that the construction of number is closely related to the development of logic, this book records a series of experiments investigating classes, relations, and numbers as cognitive domains. The author finds that number is organized, stage after stage, in close connection with the gradual elaboration of systems of inclusions (hierarchy of logical classes) and systems of asymmetrical relations (qualitative seriations), the sequence of numbers thus results from an operational synthesis of classification and seriation. Logical and arithmetical operations therefore constitute a single system that is psychologically natural, the second resulting from generalization and fusion of the first, under the two complementary headings of inclusions of classes and seriation of relations. When the child applies these operations to sets that are defined by the qualities of their elements, he is compelled to consider separately classes and asymmetrical relations hence, the dualism of logic of classes and logic of asymmetric relations relations. But when the same system is applied to sets irrespective of their qualities, the fusion of inclusion and seriation of the elements into a single operation totality occurs, and this totality constitutes the sequence of whole numbers, which are indissociably cordinal and ordinal.

Play, dreams and imitation in childhood by Jean Piaget( Book )

51 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in English and held by 2,496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Piaget's work is a cornerstone in development. His writing is long and laborious. He takes six pages to tell us that a 2 month old exhibits imitation behaviors. He was not an expert in parsimony. In his defense the translation from French is a bit awkward. What French I can read, of his work it is smoother than this translation. Case study gold, quoted as fact as if he had done something more significant than watch his own children and write down their behavior. No experimentally designed trials here. It's funny the same people and institutions who tout his great methods of research criticize Freud for his exact same research method: the case study. Many devout Piaget loyalists have never even read his original work. They've only been exposed to his work by text books in class. For this reason alone, I urge everyone to read as much source material as possible. Piaget is no exception. Get it, read it, make your own interpretation. Love it or hate it, you'll be wiser for the effort"
The grasp of consciousness : action and concept in the young child by Jean Piaget( Book )

62 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, the world's foremost cognitive psychologist turns his attention to the development of the child's awareness of his own action. The book reports the results of experimentation conducted at the world-famed Center of Genetic Epistemology in Geneva, to distinguish between the child's ability to perform the actions required by a simple task and the child's understanding of the rationale behind the action. Children, ranging in age between four and adolescence, were asked to perform such tasks as walking on all fours, playing tiddlywinks, building a ramp for a toy car. They were then asked to explain how they had performed the task and in some cases to instruct the interviewer. Their answers show a number of surprising inaccuracies in the child's ability to grasp the nature of what he had done. Taking a broad view of his results, Piaget shows that they reveal several stages in the slow and gradual development of the child's conceptualization of his actions. In analyzing each stage, Piaget argues that the child's concept of his own action cannot be considered a simple matter of "enlightenment," but must be actively reconstructed from his experience. This view has always been at the core of Piaget's work, and it is here extended into an interesting new area of the child's mental world.-- Book Jacket

The child and reality : problems of genetic psychology by Jean Piaget( Book )

89 editions published between 1971 and 1983 in 6 languages and held by 1,997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Piaget considers the way children learn about the world. He addresses such questions as the following: How does a child learn to perceive the world around him? How, for example, does he learn that by grasping an object, he can pull it towards him, or that a ball of clay, flattened, is no smaller than it was before? How does he learn to coordinate his muscles? To speak? To hold notions of right and wrong? Chapters include "Time and the Intellectual Development of the Child, ""Affective Unconscious and Cognitive Unconscious, ""The Stages of Intellectual Development in the Child and Adolescent, ""Child Praxis, ""Perception, Learning, and Empiricism, "Language and Intellectual Operations, ""What Remains of the Gestalt Theory, ""The Necessity and Significance of Comparative Research in Genetic Psychology," and "Life and Thought."

The growth of logical thinking from childhood to adolescence : an essay on the construction of formal operational structures by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

52 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in English and held by 1,861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book has two aims: to set forth a description of changes in logical operations between childhood and adolescence and to describe the formal structures that mark the completion of the operational development of intelligence. To tie these together the authors have tried to present the material in a way that would stress the close relationship between the two. Each of the first fifteen chapters (Parts I and II) includes an experimental part by the first author and a brief final analysis by the second author. This analysis aims to isolate the formal or propositional structures found in each case. Chapters 16 and 17 (beginning of Part III) are the work of the second author, whereas Chapter 18 is a joint production. In addition, the specific problems of experimental induction analyzed from a functional standpoint (as distinguished from the present structural analysis) will be the subject of a special work by the first author.

Insights and illusions of philosophy by Jean Piaget( Book )

116 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Piaget (1896 - 1980) was a Swiss clinical psychologist known for his pioneering work in child development. Piaget's theory of cognitive development and epistemological view are together called "genetic epistemology". Piaget placed great importance on the education of children. As the Director of the International Bureau of Education, he declared in 1934 that "only education is capable of saving our societies from possible collapse, whether violent, or gradual." Piaget's theory and research influenced several people. His theory of child development is studied in pre-service education programs. Educators continue to incorporate constructionist-based strategies. In this valuable book Piaget examiners his own philosophical position and compares it with present-day continental philosophical thought. Among other things, he gives the reader a most interesting insight into his own intellectual development and an account of the way in which he finally arrived at his "épistémologie génétique" and argues that recent continental philosophy has turned away from the empirical world and concentrated on introspective description . Piaget states, "The aim of this little book sound a note of warning....It does not claim to be more than the testimony of a man who has been tempted by speculation and who almost devoted his life to it, but who has understood its dangers, its illusions, and its many errors and wishes to communicate his experiences and justify his painfully acquired convictions."
