The culture of education
Bruner, Jerome S.
Adult Nonfiction LB1051.B736 1996

Comments  Summary  Contents

Summary: In a commentary on the possibilities of education, the psychologist Jerome Bruner reveals how education can usher children into their culture, though it often fails to do so. Applying cultural psychology to education, Bruner proposes that the mind reaches its full potential only through participation in the culture - not just its more formal arts and sciences, but its ways of perceiving, thinking, feeling and carrying out discourse. By examining both educational practice and educational theory, Bruner explains ways of approaching many of the classical problems that perplex educators.
