In psychology we may look at childhood or adolescence or consider the way in which we develop our gender identity or sexuality. This topic, cognition and development, considers the way we develop our ability to think, our sense of morality and our sense of self-identity.
We remain that way for many years, certainly compared to most species, many of whom can be up and running and taking care of themselves within minutes. For humans development physical and psychological is a slow process.
At what age do we become fully-fledged thinkers? When do we fully learn to empathise and develop a sense of fair play and justice? How old before a child learns to recognise itself in the mirror or realise that others may view the World very differently to themselves?
We start by looking at development of thinking. This is a huge section! We will consider the highly influential theory of Piaget and temper it with a more cultured Russian alternative Vygotsky.
We shall consider how the two very different approaches to childhood thinking have been applied separately and collectively to Western education.
Sub-topic two is now minute! Piaget proposed a theory of moral development that Kohlberg then developed further. We shall consider his theory in detail and look at its ethnic and androcentric bias. Finally we look at three ways of viewing social cognition.
How the child learns its sense of self-identity and theory of mind, how it learns to understand the views of others and finally consider biological mechanisms that might be underpinning these developments. Along the way we shall consider other theories; for example those of Bruner, Eisenberg and Gilligan that can be used by way of comparison and evaluation.
Development of Thinking Jean Piaget Background and introduction Piaget is a towering figure in psychology and widely respected by all, including those who have criticised or adapted his theories. Contrary to popular belief Piaget was not French despite being called Jeanhe was in fact Swiss.
Nor was he a psychologist not at the outset anyway but a zoologist which should really be spelt zooologist surely!
He had his first publication on molluscs when he was still at High School! Whilst working with Binet who was French and an early pioneer of IQ tests, he became fascinated by child development and spent the next 50 some years of his life studying the subject.
As a result Piaget was a true expert in his field, which as we shall see later, also covered moral development. Basically Piaget believed that the way in which we learn about and adapt to our World is constant across all cultures and races, and proceeds as a set sequence in all.
Central to Piaget's theory is how the child adapts to an ever-changing World. Piaget noticed that even the youngest of children are inquisitive and actively explore their world. Piaget is most famous for his stages but any description of his theory must also include a discussion of the structures that underlie these stages.Latest breaking news, including politics, crime and celebrity.
