Jerome Bruner

Jerome Bruner is the vanguard of "the cognitive revolution†? in psychology and the predominant spokesman for the role of culture and education in the making of the modern mind. In this text Olson encourages the reader to think about children as Bruner did, not as bundles of traits and dispositions to be diagnosed and remediated, but as thoughtful, keenly interested, agentive persons who are willing and indeed able to play an important role in their own learning and development. Through the unique approach of combining commentary and conversation with Bruner, the author provides an insight into what it is like to engage with one of the intellectual masters of our time and highlights the relevance and importance of his contribution to educational thinking today.

Cognitive Development

Cognitive Development: The Child's Acquisition of Diagonality is an empirical and rational enquiry into the child's development of a conceptual system relating to the concept of the diagonal during the age range three to six years. A detailed examination will be made of why a young child has difficulty with such a problem, and what occurs during development that removes this difficulty. In the context of these empirical arguments, the book considers such theoretical questions as the nature of intellectual skills and conceptual or symbolic knowledge, as well as the role of experience and instruction in their development. The study concludes with a description of the child's reconstruction of the diagonal in terms of what at least poses as a general model of perceptual and intellectual development, and accounts for, among other things, man's increasing ability to apprehend and theorize about the motion of the stars. It shows that it is the elaboration of the child's perceptual knowledge in the context of his performatory attempts in such cultural media as language and geometry that accounts for his ability to copy a diagonal in particular and his intellectual development in general.

The World on Paper

What role has writing played in the development of our modern understanding of language, nature and ourselves? Drawing on recent advances in history, anthropology, linguistics and psychology, the author offers a bold new perspective on how writing and reading have historically and developmentally altered our understanding of language, mind and nature. These understandings, Olson argues, are by-products of living in a "world on paper."

Literacy is an important concern of contemporary societies. This book offers a comprehensive survey of recent efforts to understand the nature of written language and its role in cognition and in social and intellectual life. The authors represent a wide range of disciplines - cognitive psychology, linguistics, anthropology, sociology, education, history and philosophy - and address a wide range of questions. Is literacy a decisive factor in historical and cultural change? Does it alter the mental and social lives of individuals? If so how and via what mechanisms? Does learning to read and write change children's speech, thought or orientation to language? What are children and adults learning when they acquire literate skills? Are there differences - linguistic, psychological and functional - between speaking and writing? And are there differences between oral and written languages?
