Pàgina 195 - ... fluids, which was of course a monstrous fable, and had never been tried by me. I may here also confess that as a little boy I was much given to inventing deliberate falsehoods, and this was always done for the sake of causing excitement. For instance, I once gathered much valuable fruit from my father's trees and hid it in the shrubbery, and then ran in breathless haste to spread the news that I had discovered a hoard of stolen fruit.
Pàgina 85 - It should also be noted that, since the child had all his needs to explain and consequently more things to say to the mother than the mother to the child, it is the child who must make the greatest effort toward inventing a language, and that the language he uses should in large part be of his own making, which multiplies languages as many times as there are individuals to speak them. This tendency was abetted by a nomadic and...
Pàgina 271 - ... until this connection has lost the charm of novelty. At present there is not, indeed, as yet any clear insight into the nexus of cause; but the child has now had the experience that he can himself be the cause of a combined perception of sight and sound regularly, to the extent that when he tears paper there appears, on the one hand, the lessening in size; on the other hand, the noise. The patience with which this occupation...
Pàgina 25 - I think there is frequently more to be learned from the unexpected questions of a child than the discourses of men, who talk in a road, according to the notions they have borrowed, and .the prejudices of their education^ 4.
Pàgina 120 - ... desires, to which scarcely anything can form a counterbalance. It is not impossible, however — and here is the secret of a liberal education, early begun — to develop from the second and third year the germs of spontaneous inhibition, that which voluntarily renounces the satisfaction of an instinctive desire, in order to conform to reason, represented for the child by the advice and the commands of parents. The child that can be guided merely by his mother's smile, and later by her mildest...
Pàgina 272 - ... interest in dolls and pictures in the tenth month (Frau von Striimpell). Here, too, the eagerness and seriousness with which such apparently aimless movements are performed is remarkable. The satisfaction they afford must be very great, and it probably has its basis in the feeling of his own power generated by the movements originated by the child himself ( changes of place, of position, of form ) and in the proud feeling of being a cause.
Pàgina 101 - ... (chemin de fer). Henceforward, a steamboat, a coffee-pot with spiritlamp — everything that hissed or smoked, or made a noise, was a fafer. Another instrument to which children have a great objection (excuse the detail and the word — I mean a clysopompe) had, naturally enough, made a strong impression on him. He had termed it, from its noise, a zizi. Till he was two years and a half old, all long, hollow, slender objects — a scissors- sheath, a cigar-tube, a trumpet, were for him zizi, and...
Pàgina xix - This origination means that there is an absolute beginning of something. But the beginning is the activity of the cause within itself. The idea of cause, therefore, involves the highest of all ideas — namely, that of self-activity. Take self-activity out of cause and there is left nothing but effect. A bad metaphysics...
Pàgina xix - ... universe often explains the idea of a causal series as a series in which every link is the effect of the preceding link, and no link is the originator of anything new. This destroys the idea of causality because it makes the entire series an effect and denies origination to any member of the series. In this the conception is that the causal influence is received and transmitted by the entire series, but that the causal influence comes entirely from outside of the series and is not to be found...
Pàgina 42 - Bow-wow,' or on taking his food exclaims ' Ot ' (Hot), or on letting fall his toy says ' Dow ' (Down), he may be said to be implicitly framing a judgment : 'That is a dog,' 'This milk is hot,'
