The psychology of the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

40 editions published between 1969 and 2000 in English and held by 2,713 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 space by Jean Piaget( Book )

104 editions published between 1947 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 2,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature of space, whether an innate idea, the outcome of experience in the external world, or an operational construction has long been a source of philosophical and speculative psychological discussion. This book deals with the development of the child's notions about space
The growth of logical thinking from childhood to adolescence : an essay on the construction of formal operational structures by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

60 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in English and held by 1,885 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.

Memory and intelligence by Jean Piaget( Book )

20 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 1,474 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
Mental imagery in the child; a study of the development of imaginal representation by Jean Piaget( Book )

45 editions published between 1966 and 1997 in 5 languages and held by 1,420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

17 editions published between 1975 and 2015 in English and held by 1,196 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

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

32 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 856 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, 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 conclusions enable the reader to separate clearly the experimental results from the authors' theoretical tenets. The authors' learning experiments with children were designed to examine the processes that lead to the acquisition of certain key concepts, such as conservation of matter and length. Detailed study of the progress of each individual subject revealed a number of features characteristic of situations that create conflicts in the child's mind and certain regularities in the way these conflicts are resolved. Such data threw new light on the dynamics of the development of cognitive structures as well as on basic mechanisms of learning at the time
The early growth of logic in the child; classification and seriation by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

32 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in English and held by 702 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
Piaget and his school : a reader in developmental psychology by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

11 editions published in 1976 in English and German and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inhelder in her introduction. The reason for this unity is that explanatory adequacy can be attained only by exploring the formative and constructive aspects of development. To explain a psychologic reaction or a cognitive mechanism (at all levels, including that of scientific thought) is not simply to describe them, but to comprehend the processes by which they were formed; failing that, one can but note results without grasping their meaning. JEAN PlACET VI Man distinguishes himself from other creatures primarily by his abstract reasoning capacity and his ability to communicate his knowledge by highly complex symbolic processes. What is called "humanity" and progress is to a large degree a measure of his consciousness and the deployment of his creative potentials. There are few scientists who have explored the universe of cogni­ tion, and contributed to the understanding of the realm of knowledge, with greater genius, care, and scientific intuition than Jean Piaget and his longtime collaborator Barbel Inhelder. Professor Inhelder and her assistant Dr. Harold Chipman realized this book in spite of the heavy load of research, teaching, and administra­ tive duties in a rapidly expanding Institute. It is therefore a particular pleasure for me to presen t this book
The diagnosis of reasoning in the mentally retarded by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

43 editions published between 1943 and 1974 in 3 languages and held by 650 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)

The early growth of logic in the child, classification and seriation by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

9 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzed are the processes of classification and seriation which form the child's ability to reason, based upon the results of eight years of experimental work with over 2000 children. The authors have found that there is a very close relation between the development of logical actions and that of sub-logical operations and actions. The fact that classificatory unions and subdivisions reach back to a primitive origin in actions means that the child has a very long way to go from the early and ill-differentiated functional aggregates to arrive at true classificatory concepts. The logical development of the child occurs in three stages. The first stage is characterized by a lack of differentiation between the logical and the sub-logical. At stage ii, there is partial differentiation; at stage iii they are completely differentiated, and the child has arrived at true classificatory concepts and is able to perform reversible operations. Logical operations (I.E. in particular, classification and cross-classification, and seriation and multiple seriation) are closely linked with certain actions which are quite elementary: putting things in piles, separating piles into lots, and making alignments.

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

13 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 272 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
