Jeremy Burman Returns Victorious!

Jeremy BurmanKudos to AHP’s own Jeremy Burman who received the inaugural Pufall Award at the 39th annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Knowledge and Development (a.k.a. the Jean Piaget Society) in Utah this past week.  Jeremy was recognized for his efforts to understand and explain the history of Jean Piaget’s theory.  This year, he organized a symposium at which Robert Campbell, Katherine Nelson, and Phil Zelazo presented papers related to his ongoing research on Piaget’s “new theory” (1964-1980).  Pursuant to the conference theme, he also presented a paper on Conrad Waddington’s conception of “pathways” in evolutionary-developmental biology.
