The moral judgement of the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

1 edition published in 1948 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Piaget was a Swiss developmental psychologist known for his epistemological studies with children. His theory of cognitive development and epistemological view are known as "genetic epistemology". Piaget states in the Foreword, "Readers will find this book has no direct analysis of child morality as it is practiced in home and school life or in children's societies. It is the moral judgment that we propose to investigate, not moral behaviour or sentiments. With this aim in view we questioned a large number of children ... and held conversations with them, similar to those we had had before on their conception of the world and of causality. The present volume contains the results of these conversations."
