Sample text

The paradigmatic stage synthesizes metasystems into paradigms, and the cross-paradigmatic stage synthesizes paradigms. S. population achieves even the first of these stages, however. Research on other postformal stages similarly suggests that these are forms of reasoning that, if they exist at all, are not achieved by most people. Although postformal reasoning continues to interest some theorists of adult development (Dawson-Tunik, 2004; Sinnott, 2003), most theorists of adolescence have been more concerned with nonlogical modes of reasoning and thinking that Piaget’s Theory of Formal Operations ■ 21 appear to develop alongside formal logic rather than on top of it, in tandem rather than in sequence.

At least some children under age 11, it appears, have at least a nascent capacity for hypothetico-deductive reasoning. But if the glass of early competence is partially full, it is also more than half empty. Even in the most effective experimental condition, a combined task that set up an elaborate fantasy context and repeatedly directed the child’s attention to structural relationships, the percentages of students in Grades 3, 4, and 5 who adequately distinguished valid from invalid arguments at least once out of four opportunities were only 25%, 35%, and 35%, respectively.

Diversity in Thinking and Reasoning Rationality for Piaget reaches its culmination in formal operations, which he took to be the universal state of cognitive maturity. As we have seen throughout this chapter, however, there are multiple types of thinking and forms of reasoning. If we are to understand the nature and development of rationality, we must understand its diversity. As we will now see, although claims of cognitive diversity have been made with regard to group differences, dual processing research shows that the primary locus of cognitive diversity is within individuals.
