Jerome Bruner : language, culture, self by David Bakhurst( )

16 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jerome Bruner is one of the grand figures of psychology. From his role as a founder of the cognitive revolution in the 1950s to his recent advocacy of cultural psychology, Bruner's influence has been dramatic and far-reaching. Such is the breadth of his vision that Bruner's work has inspired thinkers in many of the major areas of psychology and has had a powerful impact on adjacent disciplines. His writings on language acquisition, culture and education are of profound and enduring importance. Focusing on the dominant themes of language, culture and self, this volume provides a comprehensive exploration of Bruner's fertile ideas and a considered appraisal of his legacy." "With a distinguished cast of contributors including Jerome Bruner himself, the result is an outstanding volume which is of interest to students and scholars in psychology, philosophy, cognitive science, anthropology, linguistics, and education."--BOOK JACKET
The social self by Jerome Seymour Bruner( )

15 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,055 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this accessible and broad-ranging book, a group of internationally renowned scholars examines the senses in which we are 'social selves' whose very identities are intimately bound up with the communities and cultures in which we live. Drawings on Wittgenstein, Marx, Foucault, Bakhtin, Gilligan and MacIntyre (among others), the chapters show the diversity of influences that have shaped this exciting and controversial issue. The Social Self will be invaluable for students and academics throughout the social sciences and the humanities

Consciousness and revolution in Soviet philosophy : from the Bolsheviks to Evald Ilyenkov by David Bakhurst( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1991 book is a critical study of the philosophical culture of the USSR, and the first substantial treatment of a Soviet philosopher's work by a Western author. The book identifies a tradition within Soviet Marxism that has produced significant theories of the nature of the self and human activity, of the origins of value and meaning, and of the relation of thought and language. The tradition is presented through the work of Evald Ilyenkov (1924–1979), the man who did most to rejuvenate Soviet philosophy after its suppression under Stalin. Professor Bakhurst sets Ilyenkov's contribution against the background of the bitter debates that divided Soviet philosophers in the 1920s, of Vygotsky's 'socio-historical psychology', of the controversies over Lenin's legacy, and of the philosophy of Stalinism. He traces Ilyenkov's tense relationship with the Soviet philosophical establishment and his passionate polemics with Soviet opponents. This book offers a unique insight into the world of Soviet philosophy, the place of politics within it, and its prospects in the age of glasnost and perestroika
The formation of reason by David Bakhurst( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Formation of Reason, David Bakhurst expounds and defends a socio-historical account of the human mind. Inspired by the work of the influential philosopher John McDowell, Bakhurst maintains that the distinctive character of human psychological powers resides in our responsiveness to reasons, a capacity that develops in children as they are initiated into traditions of thinking and reasoning. In this process of formation (or Bildung), children enter 'the space of reasons' to become rational agents in self-conscious control of their thoughts and actions. In addition to exploring McDowell's ideas, Bakhurst draws on a variety of thinkers - including Davidson, Hacking, Ilyenkov, Strawson, Vygotsky, Wiggins, and Wittgenstein - to illuminate questions of personhood, identity, learning, rationality, and freedom. Offering an intellectually stimulating exploration of the conceptual foundations of the philosophy of education, The Formation of Reason breathes fresh life into a familiar but controversial idea: that the end of education is the cultivation of autonomy"--
Education and conversation : exploring Oakeshott's legacy by David Bakhurst( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since Michael Oakeshott spoke of education as initiation into "the conversation of mankind" more than fifty years ago, the idea has inspired a diverse array of thinkers and continues to be invoked today by those seeking to resist the influence of managerialism and narrow instrumentalism in educational policy and practice. Education and Conversation draws together papers written by scholars from both the analytic and continental philosophical traditions to offer a variety of perspectives on the implications of Oakeshott's educational ideas. The metaphor of the conversation of mankind is explored, together with the roots of Oakeshott's thinking in his early philosophical work, the relevance of his ideas to the concept of Bildung, and the significance of his political conservatism in evaluating the seemingly progressive potential of his educational ideas. In addition, concepts prominent in Oakeshott's thought are taken up and brought to bear on contemporary philosophical discussions about education, learning and development, including the nature of initiation, the phenomenology of listening, and the value of the liberal arts tradition. Education and Conversation shows how the idea of conversation illuminates both the character and the ends of education, yielding insight into the scope and limits of the philosophy of education and the character of philosophical inquiry more generally"--

Memoria compartida : la naturaleza social del recuerdo y del olvido( Book )

Memoria colectiva e identidad nacional by ALBERTO; BAKHURST, DAVID; BELLELLI, G ROSA RIVERO( )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in Spanish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No hay identidad sin memoria. Ésta es una afirmación válida tanto para los individuos como para los grupos y, desde luego, para las naciones. La Historia es una de las formas de conservar la memoria de una sociedad, pero no es la única forma de representarse (o de imaginar) el pasado y preparar el futuro. Monumentos, rituales, obras literarias y otras actividades culturales son también medios para el recuerdo y el olvido. Las emociones y las formas de poner en palabras los acontecimientos vividos (y los transmitidos por el discurso) se dan en la comunicación próxima, en los discursos públicos y en la enseñanza. Sobre estos procesos descansa tanto la constitución de los eventos memorables como la producción de recuerdos y la articulación de futuros deseables o temidos. Un destacado grupo de especialistas internacionales de los campos de la psicología, la sociología, la educación y la filosofía ofrecen aquí contribuciones teóricas y metodológicas que señalan una convergencia entre tradiciones tan distintas como la psicología experimental o el análisis del discurso. La fertilidad de estas aproximaciones se pone de manifiesto a través de un conjunto de estudios empíricos sobre casos particulares del ámbito cultural europeo y americano, en países tan diversos como Argentina, Bélgica, Brasil, Canadá, España, Estados Unidos, Italia y Portugal.

Activity, action and self-consciousness( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: This paper is a response to the author's 2009 article "Reflections on Activity Theory". It begins by briefly outlining the themes and aims of that article, and considering developments in the theory and practice of activity theory that have occurred since its publication. Thereafter, the paper embarks on a philosophical exploration of ideas central to the activity approach, including the concept of activity itself, in a way that aspires to bring the insights of its Russian originators into dialogue with recent developments in the philosophy of action. The paper argues that understanding how intentional human action is self-conscious action is essential to understanding the character of the human life form (or human life-activity) in its socio-historical reality. With both Marx and Ilyenkov in mind, the paper examines and refines Leontiev's distinction between action and activity, arguing that some activities have ends that are infinite (that is, ends that are not exhausted by their realisation) and internal (that is, intelligible only to those immersed in the activity itself). Educating and philosophising, it is argued, are, in the ideal, such activities
