A Delve into the Man Behind Cognitive Development
A Biography of the Great Jean Piaget
The great Swiss psychologist, Jean William Fritz Piaget, was born on the 9​th​ of August,
1896 in Neuchâtel, Switzerland and would die the 16​th​ of September, 1980 in Geneva. Having

fixations. An especially formative experience would be his experience with the false memory of
a kidnapping that his former nanny made-up in his youth as it piqued his interest as to why and
how he could so clearly produce and recall memories of an incident that never happened. He
would live the rest of his life bouncing from university to university, teachin...
