The booklet contains the edited versions of the lectures that were given during the opening of the library - by Pim Levelt (Director Emeritus), Karin Kastens (Head of Library) and Eleonor Fox (Professor at the New York University School of Law). Together they tell a story of the amazing and wonderful relocation of the Jerome Bruner Library and at the same time reveal the extraordinary life of a wonderful man and world-renowned scientist.
The booklet shows the richness of the handwritten dedications that characterise the books in the Jerome Bruner Library. Bruner’s ‘Gelehrtenbibliothek’ houses a variety of world-famous authors, with many of whom Bruner was befriended.
To create this booklet, the Max Planck Institute collaborated with the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, one of the world's most famous art academies. By combining the qualities of the Jerome Bruner Library, the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and our Institute, we hope we have created a memorable publication, with the aim of enticing people to visit the library.
