Example text

Play is merely diverting fun or fantasy; it deflects the child from his true destiny and logical purpose within the scheme of rationality. The problem is that the criteria for what constitutes play need not equate with the rigorous, factual demands of reality. Treating play in this manner, that is from the perspective of the rational and ‘serious’ adult, Piaget is specifically undervaluing what might represent an important aspect of the expressive practices of the child and his or her world. Following the work of Denzin: Childhood is conventionally seen as a time of carefree, disorganised bliss.

Ritchie and Kollar 1964: 24) Such seemingly bland dehumanization is not uncommon within this form of reasoning. All conventional sociological worlds rest their orderliness upon a strong yet unexplicated theory of what everyone knows, that is, upon an ascriptive notion of competence on the part of their members. As a consequence of the adult member being regarded within theory as mature, rational and competent (all as natural dispositions), the child is viewed, in juxtaposition, as less than fully human, unfinished or incomplete.

These two processes are complementary in that accommodation generates new organizing principles with which to overcome the ‘disequilibrium’ produced by the new experiences that cannot be readily assimilated. Within Piaget’s demonstrations of adult scientific rationality, the child is deemed to have appropriately adapted to the environment when constituting childhood he or she has achieved a balance between accommodation and assimilation. It would seem that the juggling with homeostasis is forever the child’s burden!
