The analysis of the relation of time and speed led Piaget to conclude that the time-speed confusion characterizing the intuitive stage undergoes development. He claimed that in the first stage, a child comparing the duration of two moving bodies attributes longer duration to the faster body, whereas in the second stage, he attributes longer duration to the slower body. It is proposed here that time-speed confusion is mediated simply by "more is more," and hence, as long as the child continues… CONTINUE READING
