The Language and Thought of the Child
SynopsisThis 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 this book. 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 mind of the child.
