Jean Piaget's Early Life:
Jean Piaget was born in Switzerland in 1896 and began showing an interest in the natural sciences at a very early age. By age 11, he had already started his career as a researcher by writing a short paper on an albino sparrow. He continued to study the natural sciences and received his Ph.D. in Zoology from University of Neuchâtel in 1918.
Piaget later developed an interest in psychoanalysis, and spent a year working at a boys' institution created by Alfred Binet. Binet is known as the developer of the world's first intelligence test...

Assimilation, one of two processes coined by Jean Piaget, describes how humans perceive and adapt to new information. It is the process of taking one’s environment and new information and fitting it into pre-existing cognitive schemas. Assimilation occurs when humans are faced with new or unfamiliar information and refer to previously learned information in order to make sense of it. Accommodation, unlike assimilation is the process of taking one's environment and new information, and altering one's pre-existing schemas in order to fit in the new information. 
The sensorimotor stage is the first of the four stages of cognitive development. "In this stage, infants construct an...

Importance of Moral Education in Your Child’s Education
Moral education is becoming an increasingly popular topic in the fields of psychology and education. Media reports of increased violent juvenile crime, teen pregnancy, and suicide have caused many to declare a moral crisis in our nation. Jean Piaget is among the first psychologists whose work remains directly relevant to contemporary theories of moral development. In his writing, he focused specifically on the moral lives of children, studying the way children play games in order to learn more about children's beliefs about right and wrong. According to Piaget, all development emerges from action; that is to say, individuals...

My Christian worldview is definitely developed every day, and has been developing since I was born. The theory I like to talk about and discuss is Jean Piaget’s Cognitive theory. The theory that Piaget introduced during his studies is comparable to every aspects of a person’s life, learning ability, and worldview. Birth to 2 years is the period of Sensorimotor. During this time frame an infant or toddler uses senses and motor abilities to understand the world. Learning is active; there is no conceptual or reflective thought. (Text 45) The most important objective that is gain during this period is object permanence. This is important because it can be related to faith...

Child Cognitive Development
Jean Piaget looked at the concept of cognitive development from a biological angle. To him, adaptation and organization are the key principles in the human’s intellect and growth. He argued that human beings always strive to have a state of balance in their mind. Adaptation comes about when the child experiences cognitive disability, that is, the situation what the child sees the world as expected and what she or he is undergoing. The child therefore buys new information and integrates with the already existing one. Piaget calls this accommodation. This comes about when the acquired new information doesn’t fit well into the already existing...

Almost every person in the world, at one time or another, experiences events that can be considered major losses (Harvey and Weber 1998). Loss weather personal, material, or symbolic will affect us all, children too can face different levels and types of losses (Hooyman and Kramer, 2006; Viorist, 1986) cited in The Person Health and Wellbeing,(1st ed.,pp.211).

October 5, 2014
How the development of morality in children develops has been a big question for parents and philosophers for decades. The issue of moral development has been and has become a hot topic within education and psychology. “One of the best known theories was developed by a psychologist named Lawrence Kohlberg who modified and expanded up Jean Piaget’s work to form a theory that explained how children develop moral reasoning” (Cherry, 2014). Moral development was described in two stages by Piaget. Kohlberg took those two...

Since the development of Psychology, the effects of childhood development and behavior has been a largely controversial topic. Psychologists, such as Sigmund Freud and Jean Piaget, have been avid supporters of the idea that childhood development largely depends upon factors in their environment while growing up. It is believed that negative environments are the embryo for psychological disorders expressed later in life. The early childhood and developmental environments of multiple clearly psychotic individuals, such as infamous serial killers, have been studied to determine the cause of such undesirable disorders. These disorders continue to hinder the lives of many people to the point that...

My abstract is definitely beyond the Blogspot. In the Blogspot, the author discussed the controversial question “does language effect/reflect thought” by mentioning a few research results that are in favour of the Whorf hypothesis, but also pointing out that the language pattern/structure does not affect how people perceive an event. In my opinion, thoughts are always being expressed by language, therefore it is much harder to figure out the relationship between language and thoughts because they are too closely link to each...

Children do not always need loving and supportive parents in order to grow up successful. In The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, not every child needs loving and supportive parents. Although they do love their children, Rex and Mary use very basic parental decisions; the children are very independent and raise themselves for the most part. With the right mindset, motivation and knowledge this can lead to success in life even through the hardest of times.
Jeannette was at the lower class growing up, but she learned to survive anyway she could at a very young age. Considering Jeannette’s parents were not very stable, Jeannette saw that even though she was at the lower side of things, there...

Life has been said to be theater for many years dating back to medieval times. So far in this book we have discussed that drama has to have an audience because the act must be put on for someone. I think that Max Burkhardt has a very decent theory of dramaturgy, he states that man acts without knowing it whenever he his being observed. In psychology this is called an observational biased, people act differently when they know they are being watched. Nietzsche says that people are constantly playing roles even when they are not being watched. This is very believable because if life is...

Critically evaluate the Attention-Interest-Desire-Action model of persuasive communication for advertising and promotion.
It all started back in 1899 from Elias St. Elmo Lewis, an American sales and advertising pioneer who spoke about the advertising as a means of catching the eye of the reader, informing him and to eventually making him a customer. This thought went on for a number of years until it evolved to be as a means of attracting attention, awaking interest, persuading and convincing. And this is not close to what is internationally known today as the AIDA model.
Henceforth, the three principles of Lewis includes; the mission of the advert that is to attract the reader; the advert...

The Role of the Gods in the Iliad
In the era of Homer, divine intervention was thought to be typical, and one of his foremost works, The Iliad, reflects this. Nearly all of the Greek gods are involved in the outcome of the Trojan War, which happens to be the background story of this epic poem. The gods are used by Homer to add twists on an otherwise standard plot of war. Evidently, the gods will be a powerful source of divine intervention and their actions certainly have significant outcomes on the Trojan War, and more importantly, the story of The Iliad. Zeus, very untypical of a Greek god in his lack of involvement in the Trojan War for selfish reasons, was portrayed as the father figure,...

In addition, CEOs often receive contributions to defined‐benefit pension plans, various perquisites, and, in case of their departure, severance payments It has been seen that the increase in executive compensation has far outweighed the rise of regular employee compensation the objective of this paper is to investigate...
