Mind changers : Programme 2 : Jean Piaget (Radio 4 series: Landmark experiments in psychology)

The second programme in the series looks at the work of child psychologist Jean Piaget who believed children learned through play. Subsequent experiments allowing children to imagine different social, rather than spatial, situations have had very different results. Claudia Hammond asks how far we should rely on Piaget's findings today.
