The Child as Thinker: The Development and Acquisition of Cognition in Childhood

Front Cover
Routledge, 1993 - FAMILY & RELATIONSHIPS - 473 pages
"The Child as Thinker provides both students and researchers with a vital review of current research in the development and acquisition of cognition in children. Sara Meadows brings together approaches from the broad fields of psychology, anthroplogy and medicine and examines both their strengths and weaknesses. The text discusses clearly the major theoretical models from Piaget to neo-Vygotskian ideas, evaluating their different explanations of cognitive development and their impolication for education. Additionally, the author includes aspects such as social cognition, economic reasoning and theory of mind, topics that are usually absent from relevant material. This title available in eBook format.
