Perspectives on the Research History of Giyoo Hatano
Inagaki, Kayoko; Miyake, Naomi
Human Development, v50 n1 p7-15 2007
In this article, we trace the development of Hatano's research, focusing on the core of his research interest, namely, expertise, conceptual development, and classroom learning. He held both Piagetian constructivist views and Vygotskian sociocultural perspectives in balance, and preferred to study human cognition executed in everyday life. This brief review strongly suggests that Hatano consciously or subconsciously introduced Japanese perspectives into the areas of human development and education, which often contributed to the expansion and enrichment of mainstream viewpoints constructed within the context of the Occidental research culture.
