Values and knowledge by Edward Reed( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is widely recognized that a person's values will profoundly affect what that person attends to, thinks about, and remembers. Yet, despite this, psychologists have only begun to study and think about the deep connections between values and knowledge. This volume explores this important area in psychology by offering an overview of what is known about the developmental role of valuation in the acquisition of knowledge, and also by examining a range of new ideas for understanding the intricate connection between evaluation and thinking. More specifically, the text:provides
Morphisms and categories : comparing and transforming by Jean Piaget( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite dissent in many quarters, Piaget's epistemology and the developmental psychology derived from it remain the most powerful theories in either field. From the beginning, Piaget's fundamental epistemological notion was that all knowledge is rooted in action, and for a long time, he identified action with transformation. What is known is that which remains constant under transformatory action. This book represents a fundamental reformulation of that point of view
Sociological studies by Jean Piaget( Book )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does a rational mind attain truth? This is the central question addressed by Piaget in Sociological Studies. It concerns the developmental mechanism which makes possible both the acquisition of available knowledge and the creation of novel knowledge. Social orthodoxy, the rigid conformity of closed societies, ideological fervour and the power of tradition are familiar social phenomena. But none provides a guarantee of truth. Piaget's question, then, concerns how the developing mind comes to understand that some available beliefs are true rather than false, and how one generation comes to replace false values by true values. There is a widely held belief that Piaget's work offers, at best, an incomplete account of the social basis for the formation of knowledge. Sociological Studies shows that this is untrue and reveals how Piaget examines the extent to which psycho-social experience contributes to the development of rationality

Values and Affectivity from a Piagetian Point of View by Terrance Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper, which analyzes the evaluative aspect of affectivity, argues that the functional internalization of organic evolution for the formation of the intellectual system of human beings required that some means of selecting behavioral variations be devised, and that the selective mechanism devised was the affective system. From this perspective, it becomes possible to relate Pugh's (1977) conception of value-driven decision systems and his account of affective mechanisms to Cellerier's (1979a, 1979b) analysis of pragmatic and epistemic transformations. Tenuous as the resulting model may be, it gives a picture more complete than other models of the role affective evaluations play in adapting action and in constructing knowledge. In a preliminary way, the model also allows the bringing together of empirical data on problem solving, on decision making, and on the evolution of scientific thought. Further study is needed to determine whether these beginnings can mature into a full-blown theory in which other aspects of affectivity will be included. (Rh)
