Piaget’s Theory

  • James Russell
Chapter

Abstract

Baldwin and the other theorists considered in the previous section did more than provide an elaborate fanfare for the appearance of Piaget’s theory, yet at the same time Piaget did much more than extend or resurrect what had been done by them. He was able to produce an account of cognitive development which was more intellectually and empirically ‘tangible’ and in which the child was more than the hero of a set of anecdotes produced to illustrate abstractions, within the context of a genetic epistemological system clearly different from that of Baldwin.
