Cross-Cultural Study of Infants and Toddlers: Developmental Stages According to Piaget Are Universal

11-02-2011 01:48 PM CET | Science & Education

Press release from: Pabst Science Publishers

"Cross-cultural research has been particularly useful in demonstrating the universality of cognitive stages during child development. For instance, the sequence and timing of Piagetian sensorimotor learning in infancy appears quite similar across cultures", Professor Dr. Alice Sterling Honig (Syracuse University, USA) reports.

"Despite the gradual nature of continuity in early development, cross-cultural studies indicate that there exist discontinuities in the developmental milestones achieved in the early years.

For example, the advances in infant intelligence that Piaget - studying his babies in Geneva - labelled ´tertiary circular reactions´ represent a truly new level of infant cognitive capacity. The toddler, deliberately varying actions to produce new effects and outcomes, carries out ´experiments in order to see´. Not only in Geneva, but in many other cultures has this impressive new ability been found among infants between about 18 and 24 months.

Thus, research impelled by the Piagetian paradigm has revealed universalities in the orderliness of development of more mature cognitive capacities throughout infancy. With behavior patterns similar to Cambridge infants, Guatemalan Indian babies living in villages near Lake Atitlan showed a lawful, invariant sequence in developing successful responses to object permanence problems ..."

Directed deceased donation: beyond the impartial allocation system
"Within a pluralistic account of morality, partial values have a merit of their own and should be assessed in their own terms. These values are extremely relevant in the field of organ transplantation, but are misunderstood at a political level where partiality is put at par with injustice, and where fairness is exclusively taken as impartial justice." Dr. Medard Hilhorst (Erasmus Medical University Rotterdam) argues "that partial values are fundamental
