About the Book

In this book are gathered together Jerome Bruner’s major papers on the "psychology of knowing". Spanning virtually the entire range of knowledge acquired from infancy onwards, they present the complete spectrum of his research, theories, and ideas concerning perception, thought, skills (of the eye, hand, ear, tongue and mind) developed in childhood, mental representation and cognition, the process of discovery and the nature and techniques of education. This will be invaluable not only for students of psychology, but also for a wider readership including teachers, doctors, biologists, sociologists and all who are interested in child development.
