The Construction of Reality in the Child: By Jean Piaget. New York: Basic Books, Inc., 1954. 386 pp.

Review by:
Victor H. Rosen

The work of Piaget has an originality of conceptualization and a uniqueness of methodology which assure the author a special and enviable position in the history of the development of psychology as a science.

This volume is concerned with the stages of development of the concepts of the 'real categories'—object, space, causality, and time—during the first two years of the infant's life. This has a special significance for current psychoanalytic preoccupation with the development of the adult ego. Escalona, in the jacket blurb, describes Piaget's present work as 'a study in genetic epistemology'.
