The Plot of the Mental Object Capacity

There Is More to Piaget’s Permanent Object Than Meets the Eye
  • Hans G. Furth


In this final chapter, I return to the inspiration that led to the present work: Piaget’s object concept. After explaining its original meaning I argue for its expansion into a societal frame. In fact, I propose that Piaget’s mental object is this social frame. Other developmental achievements presuppose this frame. In this sense this final analysis is another summary of the argument pursued throughout this book, that there is an endogenous and developmental origin to society.
