  • Extends present conception when it comes to self improvement, cognitive perception/misperception of the opposite, self-regulation, idea of brain, and a number of intelligences.
  • Focuses intimately on socio-affective improvement: character, feelings, attachment.
  • Examines causality mechanisms extensive, from hemispheric specialization to advanced adaptive platforms.

Possible phylogeneticevolutionary origins were explored Systems view The transition mechanisms posited in development were considered especially systemic, rather than purely biological or environmental, with the individual’s developing self involved in the process. Difficulties in development arise from multiple interacting factors matters but who are not Neo-Piagetians themselves. They branched out into workers in the Neo-Piagetian tradition who deal with emotions, such as Lewis and Mascolo, who are colleagues of Case and Fischer, respectively.

I expanded the notion of a hypercognitive system, in particular, to indicate that cognitive-affective structures form, in that cognition and socioaffective acquisitions are integrated Gardner described up to nine intelligences, but these appear to be domains Multiple intelligences more than anything else. According to the present work, multiple intelligences are akin to the different cognitive capacities that develop in each stage (and substage). I review literature that indicates that with growth sensorimotor intelligence is never lost and even expands, for example.

They are provided at the beginning of the book to facilitate reading. In essence, they constitute the book’s conclusions and could have been placed at the book’s end so that their justification and detailed elaboration in the text would have preceded them. However, by placing them at the beginning, the reader can refer to them, as needed, as the reading proceeds. The risk in presenting them right away is that the reader feels overwhelmed by the range and depth of the critical analysis and new conceptualizations, but the advantage is that the map facilitates the reading and understanding of the book and offers a guide to where it is heading.
