Summary This major work represents a synthesis of Piaget's pioneering studies on the development of perception (many of them reported here for the first time), which he has conducted over the past quarter-century. Perception has been studied in many ways. Piaget's investigations, however, have focused on two general problems to which most specialists have paid little attention: (1) the relationship between perception and intelligence and (2) the epistemological status of perception compared with that of other forms of knowledge. Toward the solution of these and other problems, Piaget applies his well-known genetic method. From exhaustive investigations into perceptual illusions, and their strengthening or weakening under different conditions and with subjects of different ages, Piaget proceeds to an examination of the structures of intelligence and their relation to perception.-- Book Jacket.
