Abstract

Jerome Bruner is undoubtedly one of the scholars who has chiefly contributed to the advancement of psychology. He passed through almost all the psychological paradigms and helping to illuminate the relationship between mind and culture, between human beings and contexts in which they operate and in which the process of sense making takes place (just for mentioning something of his vast intellectual program). He has built and renewal psychology and other sisters discipline from inside, but people who directly know him are fascinated by his capability to tell this incredible professional trajectory as an amazing adventure. The fine novel Living to Tell the Tale by Gabriel García Márquez is the most appropriate for describing the extraordinary convergence of living, creating and telling psychology as in the Jerry’s case. Jerry Bruner always had and still has a genuine interest for the emergence of the novelty and this book underlies exactly the innovative action Jerry made along the history of contemporary psychology which is still actively persisting. The book focus on the analysis of Jerry work in cultural psychology at the intersection with other field like education, philosophy, computational science and law.
