Curiosity: A Prerequisite for the Attainment of Formal Operations?
Hawkins, Vincent J.
Education, v103 n1 p100-02 Fall 1982
Research on Piaget's four stages of cognitive development has shown that although nearly everyone passes through sensorimotor, preoperational, and concrete operational stages, most do not reach the stage of formal operations. Those people who do attain formal operations seem to have a curiosity factor not operative in those who don't. (Author/BRR)
