Immanuel Kant on Psychological Development - Dictionary of Arguments

Upton I 5
Psychological Development/Kant/Upton: Most contemporary theories of development recognise an active role for children in their own development. This thinking has its roots in the philosophy of Immanuel Kant, who argued for a synthesis of nativism and empiricism. He proposed that we are born with certain mental structures that help us to interpret input from our senses in particular ways. By themselves, they cannot give us knowledge. It is only through interaction with the environment that these structures order and organize experience. He also proposed an active role for individuals as organisers of this experience. >Individuals/Developmental psychology, >Psychological Development/Psychological theories.
