No description available, To carry out his investigations Bruner went to the clutter of life at home the child s own setting for learning rather than observing children in a contrived video laboratory For Bruner language is learned by using it An central to its use are what he calls formats scriptlike interactions between mother and child in short play and games What goes on in games as rudimentary as peekaboo or hide and seek can tell us much about language acquisition br br But what aids the aspirant speaker in his attempt to use language To answer this the author postulates the existence of a Language Acquisition Support System that frames the interactions between adult and child in such a way as to allow the child to proceed from learning how to refer to objects to learning to make a request of another human being And according to Bruner the Language Acquisition Support System not only helps the child learn how to say it but also helps him to learn what is canonical obligatory and valued among those to whom he says it In short it is a vehicle for the transmission of our culture, In this classic argument for curriculum reform in early education Jerome Bruner shows that the basic concepts of science and the humanities can be grasped intuitively at a very early age He argues persuasively that curricula should he designed to foster such early intuitions and then build on them in increasingly formal and abstract ways as education progresses Bruner s foundational case for the spiral curriculum has influenced a generation of educators and will continue to be a source of insight into the goals and methods of the educational process, In this characteristically graceful and provocative book Jerome Bruner one of the principal architects of the cognitive revolution sets forth nothing less than a new agenda for the study of mind According to Professor Bruner cognitive science has set its sights too narrowly on the logical systematic aspects of mental life those thought processes we use to solve puzzles test hypotheses and advance explanations There is obviously another side to the mind a side devoted to the irrepressibly human acts of imagination that allow us to make experience meaningful This is the side of the mind that leads to good stories gripping drama primitive myths and rituals and plausible historical accounts Bruner calls it the narrative mode and his book makes important advances in the effort to unravel its nature br br Drawing on recent work in literary theory linguistics and symbolic anthropology as well as cognitive and developmental psychology Professor Bruner examines the mental acts that enter into the imaginative creation of possible worlds and he shows how the activity of imaginary world making undergirds human science literature and philosophy as well as everyday thinking and even our sense of self br br Over twenty years ago Jerome Bruner first sketched his ideas about the mind s other side in his justly admired book i On Knowing Essays for the Left Hand i i Actual Minds Possible Worlds i can be read as a sequel to this earlier work but it is a sequel that goes well beyond its predecessor by providing rich examples of just how the mind s narrative mode can be successfully studied The collective force of these examples points the way toward a more humane and subtle approach to the investigation of how the mind works
