The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

Presented by the Psychology Section


The New York Academy of Sciences Psychology Section invites you to an evening with Dr. Jerome S. Bruner, one of the most influential psychologists of our time. His life’s work spans across many theoretical perspectives and has influenced theories and applications of psychology in a variety of fields, including cognition, education, development, and lifelong learning. His seminal book The Process of Education (1960) and his groundbreaking work in educational theory and its applications led to Dr. Bruner's appointment to the President's Advisory Panel on Education. In the 1960s he was awarded the Distinguished Scientist Award from the American Psychological Association (APA) and also served as its president. Dr. Bruner continued to expand his ideas in subsequent books, Towards a Theory of Instruction, The Relevance of Education, and The Culture of Education.

In addition to a conversation with Dr. Bruner, we will be recognizing three individuals whom we have honored as Fellows of the Psychology Section of the New York Academy of Sciences.
