First, one may mean that an organism is born with x as part of its constitution. Second, one may mean that one is born with the tendency to develop x under certain conditions. In this case, x will eventually appear as one of the organism's characteristics, given the fulflliment of certain conditions, because of the organism's constitution.
Schema of proportion. The schema of a logical product can be characterized by the formal structure known as grouping VII. The quantification schema of proportions cannot be expressed by the formal structure of grouping VII, but it can be formulated in terms of a mathematical structure called the IN R C Group. The description of grouping VII is logically included in that of the IN R C Group. As a consequence of the logical relation that obtains between these formal structures, Inhelder and Piaget infer a prerequisite relation between cognitive structures, arguing that the schema of proportion is preceded, in time, by the qualitative schema oflogical product.
As a result, he does not want to give an evolutionary story but rather one which explains how the things people do result in understanding of certain sorts. He claims that cognitive structures arise as a result of one's behaviors, and he wants to show how this occurs. The second point is that because Piaget wishes to tell an ontogenetic story, he recoils from the assertion that cognitive structures have their origins in random variation and selection that occurs at the genetic level. " Cognitive structures are so well adapted to the world, says Piaget, that an adequate ontogenetic story cannot begin with the assumption that their appearance had its origins in a chance occurrence.
