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

344 editions published between 959 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 4,482 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 )

53 editions published between 1969 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,752 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 )

45 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,159 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 mechanisms of perception by Jean Piaget( Book )

27 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,040 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This major work represents a synthesis of Piaget's pioneering studies on the development of perception (many of them reported here for the first time), which he has conducted over the past quarter-century. Perception has been studied in many ways. Piaget's investigations, however, have focused on two general problems to which most specialists have paid little attention: (1) the relationship between perception and intelligence and (2) the epistemological status of perception compared with that of other forms of knowledge. Toward the solution of these and other problems, Piaget applies his well-known genetic method. From exhaustive investigations into perceptual illusions, and their strengthening or weakening under different conditions and with subjects of different ages, Piaget proceeds to an examination of the structures of intelligence and their relation to perception.-- Book Jacket
The grasp of consciousness : action and concept in the young child by Jean Piaget( Book )

34 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,989 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
The child and reality : problems of genetic psychology by Jean Piaget( Book )

71 editions published between 1971 and 1983 in 6 languages and held by 1,936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The way children learn about the world, especially the stages of intellectual and moral development that each child must pass through
The growth of logical thinking from childhood to adolescence : an essay on the construction of formal operational structures by Bärbel Inhelder( Book )

68 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,916 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.

62 editions published between 1948 and 2013 in English and held by 1,812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insights and illusions of philosophy by Jean Piaget( Book )

111 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Piaget (1896 - 1980) was a Swiss clinical psychologist known for his pioneering work in child development. Piaget's theory of cognitive development and epistemological view are together called "genetic epistemology". Piaget placed great importance on the education of children. As the Director of the International Bureau of Education, he declared in 1934 that "only education is capable of saving our societies from possible collapse, whether violent, or gradual." Piaget's theory and research influenced several people. His theory of child development is studied in pre-service education programs. Educators continue to incorporate constructionist-based strategies. In this valuable book Piaget examiners his own philosophical position and compares it with present-day continental philosophical thought. Among other things, he gives the reader a most interesting insight into his own intellectual development and an account of the way in which he finally arrived at his "épistémologie génétique" and argues that recent continental philosophy has turned away from the empirical world and concentrated on introspective description . Piaget states, "The aim of this little book sound a note of warning....It does not claim to be more than the testimony of a man who has been tempted by speculation and who almost devoted his life to it, but who has understood its dangers, its illusions, and its many errors and wishes to communicate his experiences and justify his painfully acquired convictions."
