Mind and Meaning: Piaget and Vygotsky on Causal Explanation.
Beilin, Harry
Human Development, v39 n5 p277-86 Sep-Oct 1996
Piaget's theory has been characterized as descriptive and not explanatory, not qualifying as causal explanation. Piaget was consistent in showing how his theory was both explanatory and causal. Vygotsky also endorsed causal-genetic explanation but, on the basis of knowledge of only Piaget's earliest works, he claimed that Piaget's theory was not causal. (Author/KB)
