It might be interesting to compare this categorization with [Van Roy's](https://blog.acolyer.org/2019/01/25/programming-paradigms-for-dummies-what-every-programmer-should-know/). They're both concerned with information-hiding & its effect on expressivity, but they seem to come at it from different perspectives (with the bottom of this categorization corresponding more or less to the top of Van Roy's).

Bringing up Piaget makes me think that maybe it's worth looking at how other models from developmental psychology might map to programming. Leary's 8-circuit model even contains metaprogramming (as circuit five) & reasonably sound metaphors for reflection (circuit 6) and revision control (circuit 7), regardless of whatever the validity of these higher circuits might be in the human context. (As for the lower circuits, his work with regard to developmental stage related personality imprinting appears to have influenced the OCEAN personality scale used by Cambridge Analytica & others.)
