Jean Piaget was a very famous and influential Swiss psychologist. Before Piaget started working with psychology, he was interested in biology. He went to the University of Neuchâtel and received his doctorate degree in science in 1918. That year, he worked in many psychology labs and in Bleuler’s psychiatric clinic. In 1919, Piaget worked at a boy’s school in Paris, where he taught psychology and philosophy. His interests grew in the way children think and reason. He liked to see the types of mistakes young children made. He was also interested in the development of knowledge and named it “genetic epistemology”. Throughout his lifetime, he was able to publish many articles and write the following books based on his research: “The Moral Judgment of the Child”, “The Construction of Reality in the Child”, “The Growth of Logical Thinking from Childhood to Adolescence”, “The Psychology of the Child”, and “Insights and Illusions of Philosophy”. Piaget was the first to discover what we call schemas.
