Sample text

In a culture where women in medicine are expected to be nurses, not physicians, for example, a young child might think about a girl becoming a surgeon but would evaluate this possibility with respect to the actual gender role arrangements of the culture and likely see it as amusing, bizarre, or inappropriate. A formal operational thinker, on the other hand, would be able to imagine a wide variety of gender role arrangements. The actual arrangements of his or her society, then, would come to be seen as the realization of one of many possibilities.

There continues to be considerable interest in postformal cognition. Some theories follow Riegel and Basseches in highlighting the dialectical nature of advanced reasoning. Others, extending Piaget’s conception of formal operations as second-order operations, have proposed elaborate conceptions of operations of the third order and beyond, the results of successive reflections on and coordinations of formal and postformal structures. Michael Commons and Francis Richards (2003) developed a model of this sort that posits a succession of four stages beyond formal operations.

There is a rationality, it appears, intrinsic to our inferential systems. Inferential systems can make inferences that are in accord with logical and other norms without being aware of their own rationality. But we can become aware of our rationality and advance it. The development of rationality is in large part a process of becoming aware of our inferences, evaluating them, and gaining control over them. Total awareness and control, however, not only is unachievable but would surely be maladaptive.
