This paper provides an overview of the background of Jean Piaget and his theory of four stages of child development. The paper discusses his influence on education and notes criticisms of Piaget's model. The paper points out that although Piaget's theory of cognitive development has appeared to lose its momentum as a new philosophy in recent years, his contributions to the education of children are far-reaching. The paper concludes that modern theorists in this area will build on the stages set out by Piaget, perhaps improving the reasoning behind his theory.
