Jean Piaget was a Swiss psychologist known for his pioneering work in child development. Piaget's theory of cognitive development and epistemological view are together called 'genetic epistemology'. He placed great importance on the education of children and is best known for his theory that children construct an understanding of the world around them, experience discrepancies between what they already know and what they discover in their environment, and then adjust their ideas accordingly. His work has had a profound impact on fields such as psychology, sociology, education, and philosophy.
