Pretending to write about the future directions of the Genevan neo-Piagetians is without doubt outrageously arrogant. No one but an inspired seer could attempt such a dangerous task. But as Marshall McLuhan has observed “nothing is inevitable if we understand the dynamics of the process that produces it.” So, with this authoritative encouragement, as well as my incorrigible inclination toward risk, I will try this risky exercise. After all, it does not seem impossible to pick out some political, sociological, epistemological, or psychological factors that may influence the dynamics of the process that probably produces neo-Piagetian ideas.
