Overview


Piaget’s influence on psychology has been profound. His pathbreaking investigations and theories of cognitive development have set child psychology moving in entirely new directions. His bold speculations have provided the inspiration for the work of others. His studies have been the subject of many books and countless articles. And, significantly, his influence has spread to other disciplines and is having an ever-growing impact on the general culture at large.Here Jean Piaget, with the assistance of his long-time collaborator Bärbel Inhelder, offers a definitive presentation of the developmental psychology he has elaborated over the last forty years. This comprehensive synthesis traces each stage of the child’s cognitive development, over the entire period of childhood, from infancy to adolescence.

A resource accepted universally for teachers is the work of Jean Piaget (1896 - 1980). Piaget focused on development, not specifically on learning, and his work provides an understanding of child perception given their age and stage of development. Piaget proposed four discrete stages of development marked by cognitive differences: (a) sensorimotor, (b) preoperational, (c) concrete operational, and (d) formal operational. For example, a child will not be able to abstract or infer until the formal operational stage is underway—generally beginning in grades six or seven or even grade eight.
