Piaget's Early Theory of the Role of Language in Intellectual Development: A Comment on DeVries's Account of Piaget's Social Theory.
Becker, Joe; Varelas, Maria
Educational Researcher, v30 n6 p22-23 Aug-Sep 2001
Critiques an article about social factors in Piaget's conceptualization of intellectual development, which ignored the integral role that language played in Piaget's writings on intellectual development. Questions the appropriateness of discarding these linguistic elements and notes that the article did not show how Piaget's early ideas on the role of language might relate to contemporary interest in sociocultural aspects of development.
