About the author (1983)

Jerome Bruner has written many seminal works on education and cognitive studies, including "The Culture of Education" (1996), "Acts of Meaning" (1990), "On Knowing: Essays for the Left Hand" (1962), and "The Process of Education" (1961). Through his distinguished career, first as professor of psychology at Harvard and then as Watts Professor at Oxford, he has been at the forefront of what became, in the 1960s, the much-heralded Cognitive Revolution that forever changed the way psychologists study the mind. During the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, he served on the president's Science and Advisory Committee, and he has since helped to found Head Start. Currently, he lives in his native New York City with his wife, Carol Fleisher Feldman, and teaches at NYU Law School.
