An incredibly influential figure in child psychology, Jean Piaget’s (1896-1980) career was dominated by a fascination with how knowledge is imparted, and a quest to discover precisely how it is accumulated by individuals. This in turn led to important work specializing in child and educational psychology. A fascinating and highly useful resource, this collection gathers together many of his most respected writings, as well as prestigious accounts of his work from other leading academics in the field.
