Research overview

My work in progress includes a book on Piaget's Developmental Epistemology for publication by Cambridge University Press dealing with:

  • major mistranslations in the English versions of Piaget's books and papers;
  • significant statements of his position in his untranslated French books and papers (circa one quarter of his total oeuvre);
  • substantive differences between his epistemology, developmental psychology, and philosophical epistemology;
  • insights in his account with significant implications for dominant positions in the human sciences, including education.

You are welcome to contact me about your interest in, or views about, any of these matters.
