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

240 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 3,931 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 )

158 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 3,706 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)

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

88 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,405 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"
Science of education and the psychology of the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

115 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in 10 languages and held by 2,385 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 grasp of consciousness : action and concept in the young child by Jean Piaget( Book )

38 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,037 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
Judgment and reasoning in the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

82 editions published between 1928 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a period of six decades, Jean Piaget conducted a program of naturalistic research that has profoundly affected our understanding of child development. P iaget called his general theoretical framework "genetic epistemology" because he was primarily int erested in how knowledge developed in human organisms. Piaget had a background in both Biology and Philosophy and concepts from both these disciplines inf luences his theories and research of child development
The child's conception of number by Jean Piaget( Book )

49 editions published between 1941 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the hypothesis that the construction of number is closely related to the development of logic, this book records a series of experiments investigating classes, relations, and numbers as cognitive domains. The author finds that number is organized, stage after stage, in close connection with the gradual elaboration of systems of inclusions (hierarchy of logical classes) and systems of asymmetrical relations (qualitative seriations), the sequence of numbers thus results from an operational synthesis of classification and seriation. Logical and arithmetical operations therefore constitute a single system that is psychologically natural, the second resulting from generalization and fusion of the first, under the two complementary headings of inclusions of classes and seriation of relations. When the child applies these operations to sets that are defined by the qualities of their elements, he is compelled to consider separately classes and asymmetrical relations hence, the dualism of logic of classes and logic of asymmetric relations relations. But when the same system is applied to sets irrespective of their qualities, the fusion of inclusion and seriation of the elements into a single operation totality occurs, and this totality constitutes the sequence of whole numbers, which are indissociably cordinal and ordinal.

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

83 editions published between 1927 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Memory and intelligence by Jean Piaget( Book )

51 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,807 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 )

40 editions published between 1948 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,755 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 child's conception of physical causality by Jean Piaget( Book )

57 editions published between 1929 and 2013 in English and held by 1,739 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 growth of logical thinking from childhood to adolescence : an essay on the construction of formal operational structures by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

61 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in English and held by 1,726 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.
