After Piaget proves that Jean Piaget‚ s work is critical for understanding some of the most current proposals in the study of psychological development. It analyzes Piaget‚ 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 Piaget‚ 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 Geneva‚ s research during the last decades before Piaget‚ s death. Contributions from scholars who formed part of the School of Geneva during the 1970s and ‚ 80s demonstrate Piaget‚ s influence on such diverse fields as infant development, ethnology, neuropsychology, semiotic development, and epistemology. After Piaget is part of Transaction‚ s History and Theory of Psychology series.
