Higher Stages of Human Development

Description

Challenges to Piaget's formal operations as the pinnacle of development have come from within and outside the child development movement. Piaget's vision, while inspiring to child research, limited the efforts of a generation of developmental psychologists, and it was only in the last decades that researchers began to look into adult development. Each chapter in this study takes Piagetian theory as a point of departure and provides a more comprehensive vision of human development. The authors represent various disciplines, including ethnopsychology, psychological anthropology, sociology, philosophy, computer and information science and neurophysiology.
