BENEVIDES, Pablo Severiano e COLACO, Veriana de Fátima Rodrigues. Kant and Piaget: discursive articulation between transcendental philosophy and genetic epistemology. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2004, vol.56, n.1, pp. 58-70. ISSN 1809-5267.
This article presents a theoretical discussion which causes problems when considering the supposed evidence of contrasts between the thoughts of Kant and Piaget. There is an attempt to extract a common aspect. This aspect is something which is present in both thinkers and which is the base of the discussion here. The discussion will establish a likeness between the two as well as finding evidence of differences between them, regarding the circumscription of their ideas in different planes of knowledge. To the point to which a difference is established between Kant and Piaget by the fact that their theories are placed in distinct planes, one can see that they are not necessarily mutually exclusive. As a result, there is a supposed original activity, placing subject and object in certain condition for knowledge to arise as well as a circumscription, or lack thereof, of the activity of the subject in the dynamic of time. They consist, respectively, in similar aspects and differences between Kant and Piaget
