The book "Abstract Thinking" consists of 50 picture cards for discovering similarities, differences, and other semantic relationships between objects. The objective is to help children develop abstract thinking. Children are asked to observe similar objects and find their similarities or differences, identifying the general category under which they fall.
Abstract thinking is a logical process where the conclusion reached relies on the agreement between multiple premises that are generally considered to be true. It is the ability to achieve decentration and full reversibility. The brain processes information, isolates characteristics, and compares them to find similarities and differences.
The book includes activities assessing children's ability to:
- find similarities;
- find differences;
- identify semantic correlations, and
- recall semantic categories.
