[Xmca-l] Re: Sad news-- Jerry Bruner has died

Jerry is dear to all of us here in Neuchâtel. As a person and as a friend.
As a scientist for his immense contribution. And also for all he did that
allowed Piaget to fully become "Piaget" (a story still to be told).
Jerry was a member of our local community as Dr honoris causa and - much
more importantly - a citizen of the Planet.

Anne-Nelly Perret-Clermont & Antonio Iannaccone and colleagues
Former and present Directors of the Institute of Psychology and Education
of the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland)

Objet : [Xmca-l]  Sad news-- Jerry Bruner has died

​At the age of 100 it cannot be unexpected, but  I have just heard from a
colleague that Jerry Bruner​ has died.
Its difficult to lose a colleague and friend who had a fundamental
influence on my own life trajectory.


It is the dilemma of psychology to deal as a natural science with an object
that creates history. Ernst Boesch
