Operations and Everyday Thinking. A Commentary on 'Dialectical Operations'
Youniss, J.
Human Development, 17, 5, 386-391, 74
Attempts to refute Riegel's (1973) claim that Piaget's formal operations distort reality for the sake of logic. It is suggested that Piaget's figurative-operative distinction is dialectical and that Piaget's theory is valuable precisely for its resolution of how a person remains internally ordered while adapting to the external world.
