Uncovering Simons’ structuralism with cognitive theories: Interactive control systems and processes of learning
() and Hélène Löning
Abstract: In this paper, the authors draw from theories of
cognition, in particular Piaget (1930, 1931, 1934, 1935, 1949, 1966, 1968)
and provide some content analysis of Simons’ writings (1987, 1990, 1991,
1994, 1995, 2000), based on four categories, which stem from our
interpretation of Piaget’s thought : the role of MCS as a language, the
interactive nature of MCS, the link between strategy and control and how
MCS deal with uncertainty.
