Our baby's name is Jean Piaget. Born on August 9,1896 in Neuchatel, Switzerland.
His father, Arthur Piaget, was a professor of medieval literacy. His mother, Rebecca Jackson, was intelligent and energetic but neurotic, which led to Piaget's interest in psychology. When he was just 10 years old he published his first "paper". During high school, he got a part-time job with the director of Neuchatel's Museum of Natural History. After high school, he went to the University of Neuchatel.
In 1918, he received his Doctorate in Science. In 1921, he published his first article. In 1923, he got married to one of his student's coworker, Valentine Chatenay. In 1929, he worked as the director of the International Bureau of Education. In 1940, he became chair of Experimental Psychology, the Director of the psychology laboratory, and the president of the Swiss Society of Psychology. In 1942, he had given a series of lectures at the College de France. He died in Geneve, on September 16, 1980.
He created genetic epistemology which is the study of the development of knowledge. For example, when a infant grabs his favorite rattle and thrust it into his mouth but when its a new object he has to learn a new thing to grab it.
