Jean Piaget

(1896–1980), Swiss developmental psychologist and philosopher known for his epistemological studies with children.

"The principal goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done—men who are creative, inventive, and discoverers. The second goal of education is to form minds which can be critical, can verify, and not accept everything they are offered."

Illustrating Piaget's Ideas

Intelligence is what you use when you don't know what to do.

Play is the answer to how anything new comes about.

What we see changes what we know. What we know changes what we see.

To understand is to invent.
