Chapter 2 Learning and adaptation in the theory of constructivism Ernst von Glasersfeld ABSTRACT Learning and adaptation are conceptually distinct and refer to different processes. Both concepts are incorporated in Piaget’s genetic epistemology and in the more radical constructivist model of cognition that has sprung from it.

It [reason] owes to understanding its pursuit of what is universal and to autistic thinking its search for quality, but without the symbolism of the latter. Reason can thus know the organisation as a whole, uniting the kind and the law” (p. 165). This passage calls for two remarks. First of all, the young Piaget was already familiar with the concept of autistic thinking, which we find in Bleuler’s work on schizophrenia, before his departure for Zurich. In addition, when he speaks of symbolism, he uses the term in a rather curious way.

SCHEME THEORY As a biologist, Piaget was well acquainted with the notion of reflex and he investigated the phenomenon in his children. Since infants manifest some such “fixed action patterns” as soon as they are born, they must be considered the result of genetic determination rather than learning. Whereas most developmental psychologists seemed satisfied with that explanation, Piaget focused on the fact that this genetic determination was likely to be the result of natural selection. In other words, he considered that these action patterns arose through accidental mutations and spread, because they, rather than others, had consequences that were conducive to survival.
