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.

Olson's book on the work of Jerome Bruner is a deeply informed and incisively written gem... Olson - one of Bruner's many influential students - makes sense of his work in a way that ties it to developments in psychology and education from the 1960's to the present. Olson relates Bruner's work to that of John Dewey, and to his own views, which place more emphasis on schools as independent institutions. The result is a highly readable and informed account of developments in educational psychology and their relation to educational practice.
