Stages of cognitive development:
0: Neonates have no idea of the permanence of objects
1: Children learn progressively about the permanence of
substances, weight, and volume.
2: The notion of space integrates visual, auditory, and tactile
3: The notion of time is acquired progressively. It requires learning
about simultaneity and correlating duration and succession.
4: Children develop progressively a practical notion of causality. At
first, they do not distinguish between goal and cause. There is no
clear distinction between animate and inanimate entities.
5: Logic is also learnt progressively. It requires an understanding of
the notions of reversibility and transitivity.
