This book is meant to celebrate the 100th birthday of Jerome Bruner, one of the most relevant scholars in contemporary psychology. Though his contribution to psychology, education and law has been massive, Bruner oeuvre has still a lot to say in terms of unexplored possibilities. The book “Jerome S. Bruner beyond 100. Cultivating Possibilities” is collecting contribution from Bruner’s students and colleagues worldwide that will try to use his legacy to look forward to the future of psychology, exactly in the spirit that Bruner himself is still interpreting. Thus, no celebration but a “genuine interest for the emergence of the novelty” and the potentialities that Bruner’s work in cultural psychology can still develop, with concepts such as ambivalence, intersubjectivity, purpose, possibilities, wonderment. The books shares the interdisciplinary perspectives of scholars coming from the different world areas – USA, Italy, Brazil, France, Denmark, UK - and different fields- psychology, education, law, philosophy, computing sciences- who provide the tale of Bruner’s academic and personal life and what is still to be done on the basis of his scientific production. The volume contains also an interview to Jerry Bruner e an almost inedited work of him.
