Overview

This book examines a key issue in current cognitive theories - the nature of representation. Each chapter is characterized by attempts to frame hot topics in cognitive development within the landscape of current developmental theorizing and the past legacy of genetic epistemology. The chapters address four questions that are fundamental to any developmental line of inquiry:

  • How should we represent the workings and contents of the mind?
  • How does the child construct mental models during the course of development?
  • What are the origins of these models? and
  • What accounts for the novelties that are the products and producers of developmental change?

These questions are situated in a historical context, Piagetian theory, and contemporary researchers attempt to trace how they draw upon, depart from, and transform the Piagetian legacy to revisit classic issues such as the child's awareness of the workings of mental life, the child's ability to represent the world, and the child's growing ability to process and learn from experience. The theoretical perspectives covered include constructivism, connectionism, theory-theory, information processing, dynamical systems, and social constructivist approaches. The research areas span imitation, mathematical reasoning, biological knowledge, language development, and theory of mind.

Written by major contributors to the field, this work will be of interest to students and researchers wanting a brief but in-depth overview of the contemporary field of cognitive development.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Unlike the previous 28 annual symposia of the Jean Piaget Society, the 1996 meeting took a rather narrow focus to commemorate the centenary of his birth: conceptual development as the centerpiece of his life and work. The 13 papers address how to represent the workings and contents of the mind, how the child constructs a mental model during the course of development and the developmental origin of the model, and what accounts for the novelties that are products and producers of developmental change.
