Jean Piaget died in Geneva. He was a Swiss psychologist, epistemologist, and philosopher. He carried out fundamental research on the psychology of learning during childhood developing years, concluding that intelligence develops differently in various learning environments. His research gave rise to the field of genetic epistemology. He opposed empirical understandings of the human mind, maintaining its irreducible complexity.
