The Culture of Education


Write The First Customer Review

In a masterly commentary on the possibilities of education, the eminent psychologist Jerome Bruner reveals how education can usher children into their culture, though it often fails to do so. Applying the newly emerging "cultrual psychology" to education, Bruner proposes that the mind reaches it full potential only through participation in the culture--not just its formal arts and sciences, but its ways of perceiving, thinking, feeling, and carrying out discourse.
