Piaget
Functions
1.Organization: info is constraint by previous structures. Its always being
integrated into previous info. Making sure that Info is integrated such that
you can satisfy the constraints, not simply added into cognition. Thus it can
produce qualitative, not just quantitative changes. Integration in turn drives
complexification.
V: There really isnt a difference between organization and adaptation.
2.Adaptation: making sure cognition and action fit environment
Self-organizing process (like evolution), not simply learning from
environment
Both are similar to integration. As info comes inorganization, as it goes
outadaptation
Criticism: Piaget is great at describing cognitive structure but impoverished in
explaining cognitive functions.
He believes that adaptation works as opponent processing between 2 opponent
processors: assimilation and accommodation
Ex: Your autonomic nervous system:
Sympathetic(fight/flight) and parasympathetic(rest/heal)how do I adapt? You need
a system that helps you to shift between both extremes. The two systems are
pushing/trying to shut down each other. b/c you live in an abstract world with
symbolic goals, you cant run/kill your problems, and your parasympathetic system
doesnt get signal to kick in.
