A classic, if still contentious, work by pioneering developmental psychologist Jean Piaget, applying the insights of social psychology and psychoanalysis to the observation of children. First published in French in 1923, and in English translation in 1926, this volume reprints the third edition (Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1959).

Synopsis:

This book is for anyone who has ever wondered how a child develops language, thought, and knowledge. Before this classic appeared, little was known of the way children think. In 1923, however, Jean Piaget, the most important developmental psychologist of the twentieth century, took the psychological world by storm with The Language and Thought of the Child. Applying for the first time the insights of social psychology and psychoanalysis to the observation of children, he uncovered the ways in which a child actively constructs his or her understanding of the world through language. The book has since been a source of inspiration and guidance to generations of parents and teachers. While its conclusions remain contentious to this very day, few can deny the huge debt we owe to this pioneering work in our continuing attempts to understand the minds of the child.
