Sample text

In nativist theories such as Fodor's the subject is maximally closed. That is to say, the information from the environment that is able to provoke a developmental change in the subject is very narrowly defined, and strongly dependent on the current developmental state of the subject. In traditional behaviorist theories the subject is maximally open, that is, there is a very wide range of potential fields of learning during any developmental state. The genuine developmental theories such as Piaget's, Bruner's, or Vygotsky's, take an intermediary stand.

However, what is needed in an explanative theory is a description of a stage in the form of a structured dynamic system which takes as its input theoretical interpretations of events at the level of experiential time, and has as its output specific shifts in its internal structure at the level of life (or stage) time. Among the classical models, Piaget's is the most elaborate as far as its internal transition structure is concerned (Moessinger, 1978; Piaget, 1975). It relates the structural model of a stage to the level of cognitive conflicts.

That is, given a description of a developmental state it could function as a conceptual operation that the theorist employs to arrive at a description of a more complex state. For instance, if an infant is able to distinguish vowels from consonants the theorist may predict the next developmental state by differentiating the set of consonants into a set of voiced and a set of voiceless consonants. The ability to distinguish between voiced and voiceless consonants might indeed be the next developmental state of the infant, but it does not necessarily follow that the child has arrived at that state by having 1 • Theoretical Problems in Developmental Psychology 41 applied a differentiation operation to the domain of consonants (Jakobson, 1947; van Geert, 1986b, 1987a).
