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

234 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 3,935 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
The psychology of the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

159 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 3,705 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 psychology of intelligence by Jean Piaget( Book )

213 editions published between 1947 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 3,563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Structuralism by Jean Piaget( Book )

160 editions published between 1858 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 2,762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a souvent dit qu'il est difficile de caractériser le structuralisme, parce qu'il a revêtu des formes trop multiples pour présenter un dénominateur commun et que les 'structures' invoquées ont acquis des significations de plus en plus différentes. A comparer les divers sens qu'a pris le structuralisme dans les sciences contemporaines ... il semble cependant possible de s'essayer à une synthèse ... Il existe bien un idéal commun d'intelligibilité qu'atteignent ou recherchent tous les 'structuralistes', tandis que leurs intentions critiques sont infiniment variables. Le structuralisme est ici expliqué par un de ses penseurs
Genetic epistemology by Jean Piaget( Book )

89 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science of education and the psychology of the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

135 editions published between 1969 and 2006 in 11 languages and held by 2,736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It concerns how the new psychological methods contribute to the renewal of the pedagogy. This is the central theme of Jean Piaget in psychology and pedagogy. Whether it is the affectivity, of intelligence, the acquisition of knowledge, of the individual work and team, of the discipline, the author indicates the broad lines of the revolution school that is imposing itself. The school, over the centuries, has been incorporated in a very empirical manner, and that is why, today, it explodes. What the present volume proposes are the means of the school reconstruction
The child's conception of the world by Jean Piaget( Book )

82 editions published between 1929 and 2015 in English and held by 2,730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

132 editions published between 1945 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,614 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 construction of reality in the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

113 editions published between 1911 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 2,313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of sensorimotor or practical intelligence in the first two years of development has taught us how the child, at first directly assimilating the external environment to his own activity, later, in order to extend this assimilation, forms an increasing number of schemata which are both more mobile and better able to intercoordinate. Side by side with this progressive involvement of the assimilatory schemata runs the continuous elaboration of the external universe, in other words, the convergent development of the explicatory function. It is apparent that a development of explicatory accommodation corresponds to the progress of implicatory assimilation. The increasing coherence of the schemata thus parallels the formation of a world of objects and spatial relationships, in short, the elaboration of a solid and permanent universe. We must study the second aspect of the evolution of sensorimotor intelligence. This new phase of mental development is of course inseparable from the first, object and causality are nothing other than accommodation to the reality of the schematism of assimilation. It is justifiable to study these phases separately, for the description of behavior no longer suffices to account for these new products of intellectual activity; it is the subject's own interpretation of things which we must now try to analyze. The symmetry between the representation of things and the functional development of intelligence enables us from now on to glimpse the directional line of the evolution of the concepts of object, space, causality, and time. This organization of reality occurs, as we shall see, to the extent that the self is freed from itself by finding itself and so assigns itself a place as a thing among things, an event among events. The transition from chaos to cosmos, which we shall study in the perception and representation of the world in the first two years of life, is brought about through an elimination of egocentrism comparable to that which we have described on the plane of the child's reflective thought and logic. But it is in its elementary and primordial form that we shall now try to grasp this component process of understanding; we shall thus comprehend how it depends on the mechanism of intellectual assimilation"--Introduction.

The grasp of consciousness : action and concept in the young child by Jean Piaget( Book )

45 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 2,065 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

Memory and intelligence by Jean Piaget( Book )

51 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,841 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 number by Jean Piaget( Book )

The child's conception of physical causality by Jean Piaget( Book )

59 editions published between 1929 and 2013 in English and held by 1,757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Child's Conception of Physical Causality, part of the very beginning of the ground-breaking work of the Swiss naturalist Jean Piaget, is filled with creative experimental ideas for probing the most sophisticated ways of thinking in children. The strength of Piaget's research is evident in this collection of empirical data, systematically organized by tasks that illuminate how things work. In his new introduction, Jaan Valsiner observes that Piaget had no grand theoretical aims, yet the book's simple power cannot be ignored. Piaget's contribution to developmental psychology was his "clinical method"--A tactic that integrated relevant aspects on naturalistic experiment, interview, and observation. Through this systematic inquiry, we gain insight into children's thinking."--Jacket
The developmental psychology of Jean Piaget by John H Flavell( Book )

11 editions published between 1963 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The major purpose of the book is simply to speak clearly for Piaget to anyone who has reasons to listen to what he has to say and who has some background and sophistication in psychology or related disciplines. Who might such a reader be? He certainly might be a psychologist--budding or full-fledged, by vocation or by avocation, with child-developmental interests but also with other interests. He might also be a student of education, psychiatry, philosophy, sociology, and perhaps other fields; Piaget has done and said things which have implications well beyond the boundaries of psychology proper. The book has a secondary aim, important but nonetheless secondary: to evaluate Piaget's work, both methodologically and in view of related work done by others. The first ten chapters serve the primary objective, while the last two, and particularly the last one, attempt to fulfill the secondary aim"--Preface
