  Sensorimotor stage
The sensorimotor stage is the first of four stages of cognitive development theorized by Jean Piaget.
The fourth stage of sensorimotor development, from nine to twelve months, involves the development of logic; the coordination between means and ends.
Stage five, lasting from twelve to eighteen months, involves the discovery of new means to meet goals.

This is perhaps one of the most important stages of a child's growth as it signifies the dawn of logic (Gruber et al., 1977).
During this stage the young adult functions in a cognitively normal manner and therefore is able to understand such things as love, "shades of gray", and values.
Lucidly, biological factors may be traced to this stage as it occurs during puberty and marking the entry to adulthood in Physiology, cognition, moral judgement (Kohlberg), Psychosexual development (Freud), and social development (Erikson).

The first stage in Piaget's stage theory of cognitive development is the sensorimotor stage which occurs during the first two years of life.
Another important achievement at sensorimotor stage is the ability to coordinate the body (for example, using arms, eyes, hands, and head at one) to perform activities, for example, seeing a desirable toy across the room and using eyes, feet, and arms to crawl over and grab it and mentioned previously.
A final achievement that is significant at sensorimotor stage is the development of the understanding of cause and effect relationships, for example an infant learns they can reach out their arm and grab something with their hand to bring it closer (LeFrançois, 1998), whether it's a toy, a cookie, or Mum's long hair.

Before these levels is a sensorimotor stage, generally lasting from infancy to age two, and beyond formal operations are several post-conventional stages generally involving altered states of consciousness.
At this stage, lasting roughly from ages 7 to 12, the child or adult (if the child doesn’t attain the rational stage) is more sociocentric and ethnocentric than before.
This summary of the stages of human development most commonly found among adults in today’s world is admittedly inadequate as an introduction to the subject, but for those already familiar with human development psychology, this may be sufficient to frame the discussion of Huntington’s proposed paradigm in global politics.

 Piaget Connection
STAGE ONE: During the sensorimotor stage, typically occurring between the eight to twenty-four months of age, the infant's cognitive development consists of constructing concepts of complex means and ends relationships as well as sensorimotor action -- concepts of time, space, causality, and permanence of objects.
STAGE TWO: During the pre-operational stage, the one-and-a-half-year-old to seven-year-old's cognitive development shifts from the reliance on sensorimotor action as the means of constructing knowledge to an interiorized mental representation.
Two issues regarding stage four are central to this discussion pertaining to adult cognitive development: (1) whether or not the age span associated with formal operations is restrictive and (2) whether or not the fourth stage adequately accounts for adult levels of thinking.

 Funderstanding - Piaget
Sensorimotor stage (birth - 2 years old)--The child, through physical interaction with his or her environment, builds a set of concepts about reality and how it works.
This is the stage where a child does not know that physical objects remain in existence even when out of sight (object permanance).
If the experience is a repeated one, it fits easily--or is assimilated--into the child's cognitive structure so that he or she maintains mental "equilibrium." If the experience is different or new, the child loses equilibrium, and alters his or her cognitive structure to accommodate the new conditions.

Oral stage begins at birth and the focus of libidal energy in this stage is the mouth.
The oral character who is frustrated at this stage, whose mother refused to nurse him on demand or who truncated nursing sessions early, is characterized by pessimism, envy, suspicion and sarcasm.
The stage culminates in the primary conflict of weaning, which both deprives the child of the sensory pleasures of nursing and of the psychological pleasure of being cared for, mothered, and held.

These are stages in the sense that all human beings who develop to maturity exhibit patterns of thinking that follow the orderly and predictable sequence that Piaget describes.
Thus, at the beginning of the concrete operational stage children are not completely competent in performing mental operations on concrete objects; they develop concrete reasoning skills while they progress through this stage.
The stages are merely broad categories that describe the ways in which learners assimilate and accommodate information and the level of abstraction that is likely to be typified by their structures.

Stage 1--Avoiding punishment--physical consequences of an action determine its goodness or badness regardless of the human meaning or value of these consequences.
Stage 5--Protects the welfare and rights of all--right action tends to be defined in terms of general individual rights and standards that have been critically examined and agreed upon by the whole society.There is a clear awareness of the relativism of individual values and opinions and an emphasis on procedure for reaching consensus.
Stage 6--Universal ethical principle orientation--right action is defined by the decision of conscience in accord with self-chosen ethical principles.

This stage occurs between the ages of birth and two years of age, as infants begin to understand the information entering their sense and their ability to interact with the world.
During this stage, the child learns to manipulate objects although they fail to understand the permanency of these objects if they are not within their current sensory perception.
This stage is marked by Egocentrism, or the child’s belief that everyone sees the world the same way that she does.

He theorized that people pass from one stage to another not just as a matter of course, but only when they are confronted with the correct type of stimulation to initiate a change.
In this stage, children begin to use language and other representational systems to conceive of, and even discuss, things or people who are not physically present.
During the formal operational stage, from age 12 to adulthood, people develop the ability to think logically and systematically and to understand abstractions and the concepts of causality and choice.

 From direct to reflexive (self-)knowledge: A recursive model.
Consequently for Piaget the problem is not to explain the transition from sensorimotor schemes to concepts but rather the transition from concepts expressed by practical activities based upon sensorimotor schemes (coordination of actions) to concepts expressed by reasoning based upon logical operations (coordination of internalized actions) or formal operations.
Thus at the sensorimotor level he defined with the same structure the behavior of the newborn as well as those of the eighteen-month-old (Piaget, 1937).
Finally I have to mention that the majority of the general coordinations of actions that Piaget described in the course of the sensorimotor stage are already part of the newborn's repertoire, such as for example the hand and mouth coordination, the visual and manual coordinations, the means-end coordinations, the actions of adding and substracting, etc.

So, if a child were in the preoperational stage (age 2 to 6/7), he would not successfully be able to master tasks of a concrete operational stage (ages 6/7 to 11/12) child.
As opposed to preoperational children, children in the concrete operations stage are able to take into account another person’s point of view and consider more than one perspective simultaneously, with their thought process being more logical, flexible, and organized than in early childhood.
Piaget considered this the ultimate stage of development, and stated that although the children would still have to revise their knowledge base, their way of thinking was as powerful as it would get.

During this stage, the affective development is shown in egocentrism and equilibrium or self-regulation.
Moreover, the major difference between this stage and pervious one is that children are capable of using symbols to represent the environment, and their abilities are not restricted to direct interactions with the environment (Phillips, 1981, P. Because of this, children can use symbols to represent absent objects, and their language skills are improved.
Once someone reaches this stage, he or she should be able to think abstractly, to manipulate abstract concepts, to use hypothetical reasoning, and to exercise creative language.

In this period (which has 6 stages), intelligence is demonstrated through motor activity without the use of symbols.
In this stage (characterized by 7 types of conservation: number, length, liquid, mass, weight, area, volume), intelligence is demonstrated through logical and systematic manipulation of symbols related to concrete objects.
In this stage, intelligence is demonstrated through the logical use of symbols related to abstract concepts [emphasis added by Moursund].

Development during this stage connects the sensorimotor thinking of infancy, which reaches its most advanced state in means-end behavior and tool use, with the logical thinking of middle childhood (on which formal schooling depends).

Although Case's four stages are thought to be invariant, research by Fiati (1992; reported in Case & Okamoto, 1996) has indicated that as with Piaget's formal operational stage, Case's higher stages of cognitive development may not be reached in non-Western cultures that have no formal schooling.
