Noch bis zum Ende der siebziger Jahre wurde in vielen westlichen Industriestaaten von der Vorstellung ausgegangen, Kinder- und Jugendarmut sei ausschließlich ein Phänomen, das in den sogenannten Entwicklungsländern vorkomme.

A child can be considered to display this grouping if he can solve the problem of the brown a n d wooden beads (see p. 43), GROUPINGS OF RELATIONS V. Addition of asymmetrical relations An asymmetrical relation is one like "father of", because if X is the father of Y, then Y is not the father of X. A more general example would be "greater t h a n " , because if X is greater than Y, Y is not greater than X. This particular relation is said to be transitive, because if X > F, and Y > Z, then X > Z.

However, we must not exaggerate the baby's new-found freedom. If a doll is hidden behind a cushion, the baby can push aside the cushion in order to obtain it; but if, after he has done this a number of times we remove the doll on the next occasion, and in the baby's full view, place it behind another cushion, he will look behind the^n^ cushion. It is as if his habit of repeating a previously successful action is too strong to be overcome in the new circumstances. 5. Stage of tertiary circular reactions In stage 4 we have observed the child differentiating actions into means and ends.

He has discovered a new means, and naturally he will repeat the action on future occasions, so this novel reaction becomes circular. What is distinct about his behaviour in this stage is that he will vary his actions, thus trying out new movements rather than simply repeating actions that he has discovered. This is why Piaget calls the reactions tertiary rather than secondary. Babies at this stage of development spend a considerable amount of time exploring new objects and investigating to see what can be done with them.
