A basic issue here is how stages are related to the child's ac-tual intellectual functioning. Developmentalists disagree as to whether Piaget thought that the logical structure of each stage should lead to sim-ilarity in thought over a variety of content areas (Chapman, 1988; Lourenco & Machado, 1996). The structural model may be an idealized model of thought that differs somewhat from the psychological func-tioning of the child. Perhaps the problem of interpreting what Piaget meant is that "Piaget used too much logic for psychologists and too much psychology for logicians"
Hmm? Meaning his theories were both too specific and too general?
