Book Review: On Knowing: Essays for the Left Hand

Abstract

Social science, however, would have achieved much if it should succeed in being able to set limits on human behavior and determine its potentialities. Modern psychiatry, however, is failing to live up to these four criteria. It is in its emphases on self concepts and concepts of value that the importance of Becker's volume lies. These are the emphases which are of maximum importance to a humanistic psychology. For these reasons Becker's critiques possess a good deal of substance. For these reasons also humanistic psychologists will want to become familiar with them. JEROME S. BRUNER. On Knowing: Essays for the Left Hand. Cambridge, Mass.: The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1962, 165 pp. Jerome S. Bruner has been moving in recent years in a direction which makes understandable the interests shown in the present volume. His contribution to the Colorado Symposium (2) and to the conference at Woods Hole (1) foreshadowed in a sense the present group of essays. In this volume Bruner's interests have prompted him to concern himself with the powers of intuition, feeling, and spontaneity and the role they play in knowledge and behavior.
