Through chapters from his best-selling books, his autobiography, and original journal articles, the reader can follow Bruner's thinking on questions such as, How do human beings presume to educate their young, we, the only species on earth that does so? Do our ways of "educating" conform to what we have been learning about learning during these past centuries? How can we adapt what we know in general about the nature of learning processes to fit modern conditions such as poverty, race discrimination, and urban life? Professor Bruner writes about these matters with the grace and passion for which he has become world famous. He discusses the scientific issues alongside the political, and "administrative" ones, and draws on his research findings and his active participation in projects on improving schooling in America, the UK, and Europe.

Jerome Bruner is one of the best-known and most influential psychologists of the twentieth century. He was one of the key figures in the so called 'cognitive revolution' that today dominates psychology around the world - but it is in the field of education that his influence has been especially felt. Bruner helped start the educational reform movement in the USA during the early 1960s and served on the President's Science Advisory Committee during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. He has since been involved in a variety of educational enterprises, including the founding of Head Start, of which he was a major architect. 'How one conceives of education', he wrote, 'we have finally come to recognize, is a function of how one conceives of the culture and its aims, professed and otherwise.' In this two volume set, Bruner has selected and assembled his most important writings about education. Each volume begins with a specially written Introduction, which sets the context and introduces the selection. These books are the ultimate guide to Jerome Brunerâe(tm)s most important and influential work - ideal for both students and academics who want to be able to follow the development of his thinking over his seventy-year career.

Readers will be able to follow the themes and strands and see how their work contributes to the development of the field. This volume brings together the selected works of Fazal Rizvi. Born in India, Fazal Rizvi has lived and worked in a number of countries, including Australia, England and the United States. Most of his educational encounters have been 'in the global'. He has developed a keen sense of the multiple and conflicting ways in which transnational ties and interactions are transforming the spaces in which identities and cultures are forged and performed, and in which education takes place. Much of his research has sought to examine how educational systems around the world have interpreted and responded to the challenges and opportunities of globalization. In this collection of his papers, written over a period of more than two decades, Fazal Rizvi seeks to understand the shifting discourses and practices of globalization and education, critically examining the ways in which these are: reshaping our sense of identity and citizenship, and our communities creating transnational systems of ties, networks and exchange taken into account in the development of policies and programs of educational reform producing uneven social effects that benefit some communities more than others. Fazal Rizvi's analysis shows how recent global transformations have mostly been interpreted through the conceptual prism of a neo-liberal imaginary that have undermined education's democratic and cosmopolitan possibilities.

Revisionist Revolution in Vygotsky Studies brings together recent critical investigations which examine historical and textual inaccuracies associated with received understandings of Vygotsky’s work. By deconstructing the Vygotskian narrative, the authors debunk the 'cult of Vygotsky', allowing for a new, exciting interpretation of the logic and direction of his theory. The chapters cover a number of important themes, including: The chronology of Vygotsky’s ideas and theory development, and the main core of his theoretical writings Relationships between Vygotskians and their Western colleagues The international reception of Vygotskian psychology and problems of translation The future development of Vygotskian science Using Vygotsky’s published and unpublished writings the authors present a detailed historical understanding of Vygotsky’s thought, and the circumstances in which he worked. It includes coverage of the organization of academic psychology in the Soviet Union, the network of scholars associated with Vygotsky in the interwar period, and the assumed publication ban on Vygotsky’s writings. This volume is the first to provide an overview of revisionist studies of Vygotsky’s work, and is the product of close international collaboration between revisionist scholars. It will be an essential contribution to Vygotskian scholarship, and of great interest to researchers in the history of psychology, history of science, Soviet/Russian history, philosophical psychology and philosophy of science.
