Caption: Jean Piaget (1896-1980), the Swiss psychologist and philosopher, teaching children in a classroom. Much of his study of theories of human knowledge (epistemology) was based on how children's minds develop. Piaget showed that children think in different ways to adults. He demonstrated that children's misconceptions are often entirely logical if their limited knowledge is taken into account. Consequently, he thought that there is often more than one way of knowing something. He believed that children constantly build and test their own theories about the world. Piaget's work led to the creation of scientific fields such as developmental psychology and cognitive theory.
