He develops, for himself, his personal cogni­ tive buildings and because this strategy of improvement is not just exterior, yet is going on internally to boot, it sort of feels moderate to imagine that common sense considered from this finish isn't really biased as a lot by way of the cultural context during which it's tested. might be a few examples. at this element, may possibly greater show the idea.

This work, on one hand enlightens a child's capacity, and then too, points to another property of a given stage in development. In short, the problem of learning takes on another dimension here, and this is the dimension of the particular stage in which the child is and his consequent ability to integrate information by one mode or another.

Further, it is a well known fact [27] that logical classification are favored by language. It seems also almost common knowledge that spatial operations are related to the ability to differentiate coordinates in time - to make statements about a past and future. Thus, at a first glance one could argue that a cultural group whose language does not facilitate spatio-tempora1 differentiation would have a parallel difficulty in dealing with spatial organization. We might expect that for this group the ability to make differentiations in a spatial world would be acquired relatively later in development, since its language does not favor this development.

Long before we set foot on the reservation, however, much groundwork had been laid for our program. Under the supervision of the Acting Director of the Community Mental Health Program and with the aid of staff members, a series of community meetings was organized in which our research proposal and its implications were discussed.
