After Piaget proves that Jean Piagetâ s work is critical for understanding some of the most current proposals in the study of psychological development. It analyzes Piagetâ s legacy, moving beyond the harsh critiques that have circulated since he lost prominence. It also brings together new developments and research practices that have grown out of Jean Piagetâ s tradition, while providing a retrospective glance into the intellectual atmospheres of different periods at which the contributors encountered Piaget. This book reveals the richness and coherence of the School of Genevaâ s research during the last decades before Piagetâ s death. Contributions from scholars who formed part of the School of Geneva during the 1970s and â 80s demonstrate Piagetâ s influence on such diverse fields as infant development, ethnology, neuropsychology, semiotic development, and epistemology. After Piaget is part of Transactionâ s History and Theory of Psychology series.
