Inside the Psychologist’s Studio: Jerome Bruner

Legendary psychological scientist Jerome S. Bruner, who made groundbreaking contributions to cognitive psychology and the science of perception, died in June 2016 at the age of 100. The APS Williams James Fellow reflected on his life and career in a March 2013 interview with historian Robin Cautin.



Unlike so many eminent scholars Jerry was unusual in his extraversion and warmth and his love of bon vivant. I always found his presence and his conversation uplifting emotionally and cognitively.

Wow. At the age of 100. Twenty books in seventy languages.. Posible ways of doing well is a good objective! Yes
