VONECHE, Jacques  y  STOLTZ, Tania. Ação como solução ao problema mente e corpo na teoria de Piaget. Educ. Rev. [online]. 2007, n.30, pp.17-43. ISSN 0104-4060.

This article discusses the relation between mind and body in Piagetian theory. The relation between mind and body is explained by Piaget in terms of a parallelism between psyche and physical processes. On one side, the body is a part of the world of material objects and, as such, obeys the rules of causality. On the other hand, the mind is a formal unity and, as such, obeys the rule of formal necessity that is implication. What is the relation between both? All forms of knowledge have the origin in sensory-motor actions. Actions are at first rhythmic and afterwards regulatory. Regulations give origin to different forms of rule behavior and norm consciousness. This consciousness requires a distinction between facts and norms, causes and meanings, as well as the distinction between mind and body. However, both poles of these pairs are always complementary to each other. The principle of equilibration regulates the potential isomorphism between mind and body as its development in a general spiral of knowledge. The body constitutes the mediator between self and the environment, as well as this mediation inversely constitutes the self itself.
