No 896: Uncovering Simons’ structuralism with cognitive theories: Interactive control systems and processes of learning

Claire Dambrin () 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.

Keywords: Simons; Piaget; learning; cognition; interactive control systems
