Abstract

Following Piaget's opening remarks at Cornell University this paper was delivered for the purpose of summarizing American cognitive studies. The emphasis is on two current approaches to the study of cognitive growth in children—a modified stimulus-response approach and the approach serving as the basis for the research effort in the Center for Cognitive Studies at Harvard University under the direction of Jerome Bruner. Similarities and differences in these two approaches and experimentation representative of each approach are presented.
