Psychology of education has long held a place in the curriculum for training teachers but what implications can psychological theory legitimately have for educational practice? In this book the author makes a direct attack on the current role of psychology in education, showing important differences between psychologists' and educators' interests in topics such as learning, motivation and development, and questioning the validity of many of Piaget's most fundamental ideas. He compares two developmental theories that superficially have much in common – Plato's and Piaget's – and focuses on their implications for learning in the classroom. He shows why Plato's theory (whether or not we agree with it) serves as a model of a useful educational theory and why Piaget's theory has no implications for education. He reaches the conclusion that psychological theories and research based on them are irrelevant to educational practice.

"What is most impressive about this book is its intelligence, its sophistication, and its charm. . . . This book presents Piaget's work and his person better than anything else that I know about."—David Elkind, Tufts University "The tone is one of constant movement from the most ordinary to the most abstruse. There are 14 conversations with 'le Patron,' some in 1969, some in 1975, and several more with co-workers in various fields. . . . In Mr. Bringuier's book, in a pleasant informal way, we see a sophisticated non-scientist exploring Piaget's domain with the master. Some of Piaget's best-known findings about children as explained along the way, but Mr. Bringuier has ways of bringing out the relation of this psychological work to the whole of Piaget's enterprise, and we get a good sense of the man and his work."—Howard E. Gruber, New York Times Book Review

The first full-length study of Jean Piaget as a philosopher and evolutionist. Messerly traces Piaget's earliest conjectures about knowledge through its further developments to its mature formulation as 'genetic epistemology.' Messerly analyzes Piaget's constructivist theory of the evolution of human knowledge as continuous with, yet partially transcending, the biological process of adaptation to the environment. Messerly's study serves as an invitation to further explorations with Paiget's theory and will interest philosophers, biologists, and psychologists.

"The first edition, published in 1971, served for the past three decades as the most comprehensive reference source on education. The revised version proves a worthy successor. Its eight volumes contain over 850 articles written or reworked by more than 1,000 contributors. Nearly every article has been completely rewritten, with many new topics added. The six appendixes include information on achievement tests, state departments of education, legislation and court cases important to the field of education, and a 138-page index."--"The Top 20 Reference Titles of the Year," American Libraries, May 2004.
