The plenary speakers will explore, compare, and contrast different epistemological perspectives on social development.

Submissions need not address the conference theme—we welcome submissions on any topic in developmental science. The aim of the Jean Piaget Society is to promote the study of the of knowledge and development. We are an international, interdisciplinary society of scholars, teachers and researchers interested in exploring the nature of the developmental construction of human knowledge.
