Knowledge: process not fact maybe

Psychology and Epistemology-Towards a Theory of Knowledge by Jean Piaget (Allen Lane, the Penguin Press 0.50) The theories of knowledge developed by British philosophers over the last 300 years generally share the assumption that knowledge is a fact.

Professor Piaget is best known for his work as an experimental psychologist with children and for his theoretical writings on education. In this short book he puts forward the view that knowledge is a process rather than a fact.

Nevertheless, it is thought provoking; never dull or academic.

The translation from French is clear and fluent. and the quality of the production justifes the book's price.
