Who is Piaget? Jean Piaget, born in Switzerland, 9 August 1896 – 16 September 1980), was a Swiss psychologist and philosopher, well known for his pedagogical studies. His theory of cognitive development and epistemological view are together called “Genetic Epistemology”. He laid great importance to the education of children, which made him declare in 1934 in his role as Director of the International Bureau of Education that “only education is capable of saving our societies from possible collapse, whether violent, or gradual.” In 1965, he created the International Centre for Genetic Epistemology and directed it until 1980. Jean Piaget is "the great pioneer of the constructivist theory of knowing."

Sensorimotor stage (Infancy) 0—2 years In this period, intelligence is demonstrated through motor activity without the use of symbols. Knowledge of the world is limited (but developing) because its based on physical interactions / experiences. Children acquire object permanence at about 7 months of age (memory). Physical development (mobility) allows the child to begin developing new intellectual abilities. Some symbolic (language) abilities are developed at the end of this stage.
