Jean Piaget on Internalisation - Dictionary of Arguments

Habermas IV 20/21
Internalisation/Freud/Habermas: similar to G. H. Mead, Freud and Piaget introduce a learning mechanism of internalisation, Piaget in the sense of an "interiorization" of action schemes, Freud in the sense of the internalisation of relationships with a social object, namely a (abandoned) reference person.
Unlike in the case of a reflexive relationship, in which a subject bends back to itself to make itself an object of itself, the model of internalisation states that the subject finds itself in an exterior by taking in and appropriating what opposes it as an object.
The structure of appropriation differs from that of reflection by the opposite sense of direction: the self does not refer to itself by making itself an object, but that it recognizes the relinquished subjective in the external object, the action schema or the relationship schema.
HabermasVs: these explanations remain attached to the model of the philosophy of consciousness. This model, which is based on an inner dialogue, can already be found in Augustine's work.(1)
