The Development of Thought: Equilibration of Cognitive Structures
Jean Piaget is unquestionably one of the world's most renowned psychologists. This book encompasses his latest research and recasts his previous conclusions in the light of his recent work. His central idea is that knowledge proceeds neither from intuitive or logical internal processes, but that it develops from a series of cognitive structures, built one above the other, requiring continuous adjustment and leading to further constructions. -- Publisher description.
