Jean Piaget: Critical Assessments, Setby Leslie Smith
Synopses & Reviews
Jean Piaget is unquestionably one of the outstanding figures of twentieth-century psychology. No one since Freud has had such an influence on the subject. Piaget's stature as one of the giants of psychology is recognized even by his critics. <BR> By common consent Piaget's work is demanding. His output was huge--he was the author or editor of some eighty books and he wrote some five hundred papers and reports. "Jean Piaget" presents in four volumes a selection of the key critical writings on the major themes of Piaget's work. Each volume contains an integral guide to the papers selected and there is a substantial general introduction (Volume 1)_and concluding assessment (Volume 4) by the editor. <BR> The issues in each volume have included contributions dealing with replication, elaboration, application, and evaluation of Piaget's work at both empirical and theoretical levels. Further, the selections have been made with attention to the successive dialogues that have been characteristic of the Piagetian critique. <BR> Piagetian research is a vast and expanding body of interdisciplinary writings; this work will provide a welcome and unique guide to this daunting area of study.
Provides a welcome and comprehensive guide to the vast and expanding body of Piagetian research, providing in four volumes the key critical writings on the major themes of Piaget's work.
