The psychology of the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

211 editions published between 1913 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 4,053 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)
Memory and intelligence by Jean Piaget( Book )

58 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In short, the reader will be presented not only with a number of experimental facts but also with several theoretical notions, the validity of which the future alone can decide. For the rest, there is one aspect of these studies that has greatly encouraged us in our work: the surprising discovery, in a sphere apparently remote from that of cognitive operations, of a precise succession of operational stages, whose existence we ourselves might have begun to doubt had we listened to all those who do not, or rather do not yet, believe in the validity of the operational approach
The child's conception of space by Jean Piaget( Book )

51 editions published between 1956 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book deals with the development of the child's notion about space. The authors' investigations have been concerned with the order and manner in which children begin to imagine or visualize the various spatial entities and spatial characteristics of objects. They report that the child first recognizes various objects by sense of touch alone and is followed by building up and using certain primitive relationships. Contrary to the historical development of geometry which began with treatment of straight lines, angles, distances, and plane figures, Piaget and Inhelder find that the child begins by noting the topological as opposed to the metric properties of objects. He begins by ignoring straight lines, angles, parallels, and the regular forms thereby constituted and considers only qualities such as closure, proximity, separation and continuity. From such beginnings he is finally able to deal with metric properties such as conservation of direction, distance and relative operation. The child is thus able to establish a spatial "schema" or network of dimensions in which the spatial properties of objects can be organized. The authors develop the theories advanced in previous works to indicate the nature of the psychological mechanisms required to mediate spatial properties and endeavor to show the interrelationships between logical and psychological systems laid down.

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

71 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,749 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.

Mental imagery in the child; a study of the development of imaginal representation by Jean Piaget( Book )

66 editions published between 1966 and 1997 in 6 languages and held by 1,582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The origin of the idea of chance in children by Jean Piaget( Book )

49 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although originally published in France in 1951 this English translation was not published until 1975. The book supplements the authors' previous publications on the development of thought in the child and is the result of two preoccupations: how thought that is in the process of formation acts to assimilate those aspects of experience that cannot be assimilated deductively - for example, the randomly mixed; and the necessity of discovering how the mental processes work in the totality of spontaneous and experimental searchings that make up what is called the problem of 'induction'. Inducti
The early growth of logic in the child, classification and seriation by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

35 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in English and held by 1,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We should perhaps apologize for inflicting another volume on the patient reader. And yet, in a sense, this work is long overdue. Elsewhere, in our discussions on the development of children's thinking in relation to problems of number, quantity and space, and again in dealing with the notion of chance and inductive reasoning, we have spoken of the formation of elementary logical operations. But the development of these structures as such deserves a separate study, and, from a logical point of view, we should have started with it

Learning and the development of cognition by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

59 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do children learn and how are new modes of thought developed? These questions have for years been of paramount interest to psychologists and others concerned with the cognitive development of the child. In this major work, originally published in 1974 and reporting on over ten years' research of the Geneva School, the authors carried the pioneering investigations of Jean Piaget to a new and remarkable level. As Piaget said in his foreword to the book: 'The novelty of the findings, the clarity of the theoretical interpretation, and the sometimes even excessive caution of the concl

The diagnosis of reasoning in the mentally retarded by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

52 editions published between 1943 and 1974 in 3 languages and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The application of Piaget's theory of cognitive development to the assessment of mental ability of the mentally retarded is presented. Following a discussion of developmental theories and diagnosis of mental development, testing interviews demonstrate the limits of cognitive thought at each of three stages. Abnormal intellectual oscillations are described in terms of progressive reasoning, the true oscillations, retrogressive reasoning, and abnormal decalages. Conclusions are discussed for the following: the genetic diagnosis of reasoning, clinical indices of mental deficiency, and deficiencies in reasoning and the theory of development. Appendixes give descriptive data on the 159 subjects and practical directions for testing in the clinical method. An 88-item bibliography is included. (Le)

Working with Piaget : essays in honour of Bärbel Inhelder by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following an initial chapter establishing Inhelder's stature as an independent researcher in her own right, the various research topics that she explored are reviewed and discussed with specific reference to her own perspective and in the chronological order in which she approached them. While the book explores Inhelder's work with her more famous colleague, it also highlights areas of research in which her ideas were at variance with those of Piaget, such as mental imagery, and areas in which her innovations have not been fully recognised, such as her discovery of the formal operations stage - an event usually attributed to Piaget - and her introduction of longitudinal studies in the field of cognitive development. Her research, viewpoint and contribution in other fields such as mental retardation, learning, and cross-cultural issues in development are also discussed. The final chapter, written by Inhelder herself, deals with experimental reasoning in children and adolescents and provides a glimpse of her creativity." "Working with Piaget will be of great interest to developmental, social and educational psychiogists."--Jacket
