As the coeditor of the book Mike mentioned, I'd like to use the
occasion to say something more about it. The book is, indeed, about
tools and intelligence (broadly understood) and it includes
contributios by Mike, David Olson, Gavriel Salomon, David Perkins,
Patricia Greenfield and collaborators, Susanne Lajoie, Carlos Diaz-
Canepa, jean Michel Hoc, Bob Sternberg, R. Nickerson, myself, among
others. The preface was written by Jerry Bruner. It should go to press
soon. It is indeed a cultural psychoogical book that would be of
interest to all the participants in this forum.
