Heinz Werner Lecture Series
In 1957 the Institute for Human Development was founded (later the Heinz Werner Institute of Developmental Analysis), and in 1966 it began hosting the prestigious Heinz Werner lecture series and published the monographs thereof. This series consists of the monographs from 1966 to 2000, when Clark University Press ceased its operations.

Inside and Outside: Gene, Environment and Organism
Richard C. Lewontin
"I was in some doubt that I could say anything to psychologists that would be both interesting and true. I then realized that psychology is a branch of biology for which the general problems of development are supremely relevant and that as a geneticist working at a time when DNA seems to dominate every mode of biological explanation, I could be useful to psychologyists if I could present the more sane truth about genes, environment and organism."
Development and Plasticity in the CNS: Organismic and Environmental Influences
Donald G. Stein
"This is the seventeenth of the Heinz Werner Lecture Series. This series is designed to provide a forum for outstanding scholars who are known for their contributions to the developmental analysis of biological, psychological and/or sociocultural phenomena."
The Rise and Fall of Development

Perceptual Assurance and The Reality of the World
Errol E. Harris
"This is the VIIIth volume in the distinguished series of Werner Lectures sponsored by Clark University. In it, the author deals with perception in the light of the phenomenological theories of, among others, Husserl, Heidigger, and Merleau-Ponty, and he attempts to synthesize from their theories a new solution to the problem of transcendence."
Of Human Diversity
"In this volume, taken from the Werner Lectures, Dr.Rene Dubos-who is a well-known bacteriologist-examines a particularly modern concern, "individualism," as it applies to nations and individual men, and to the development of personality. In his comments on personal individuality and will, Dr.Dubos analyzes the factors that shape human life for the individual: the innate genetic code of the species, the specific environment, and the uniquely human power of "creative adaptation."
Dramatism and Development
"This is the sixth of The Heinz Weiner Lecture Series. This series is designed to provide a forum for outstanding scholars who are known for their contributions to the developmental analysis of biological, psychological and/or socio-cultural phenomena."
Biology, Purpose and Ethics
Conrad H. Waddington
"Dr. Waddington argues that a subjective element is necessarily involved in all science, and that the conventional scientific repudiation of the concept of purpose is unjustified. Using ideas derived from study of the dynamic processes in biological systems, he attempts to throw some light on problems of mind, spirit and ethics."
Processes of Cognitive Growth: Infancy
Jerome S. Bruner
"This is the third lecture given at Clark University, Worcester, Massachusetts in honor of the late Heinz Werner, world-famous developmental psychologist. In this volume Dr.Bruner discusses four great issues in human infancy. Through what processes does voluntary control of behavior develop? Through what means does the child gain control of his own attention? Through what form of learning does the infant progress from being a one-track enterprise, capable seemingly of one activity at a time, to a capacity for carrying out several lines of activity jointly or synergetically? Finally, how does the infant manage to begin a career of reciprocation and exchange that prepares him for adult activity within today's culture?"
On the Development of Memory and Identity
"This is the second lecture given at Clark University in honor of the late Heinz Werner, world-famous developmental psychologist. In these two lectures, Professor Piaget raises fundamental questions concerning the nature of memory in the developing child and his response to invariance. In the first, "Memory and Operations", he examines the way in which memory schemata are transformed during the course of the formation of "concrete operations" in early childhood. In the second, "Identity and Conservation", he outlines a developmental sequence of identity responses, starting with simple recognition of persons in infancy and leading up to conservation as an understanding of the invariance of certain quantitative properties or attributes as an object is subjected to particular transformations."
Organismic Psychology and Systems Theory
Ludwig Von Bertalanffy
"This book contains the Inaugural Lectures given at Clark University in honor of the late Heinz Werner, world-famous developmental psychologist. Dr. von Bertalanffy here attempts to establish a new interdisciplinary science of man, a science that would encompass aspects of psychology, biology, psychiatry, linguistics and anthropology by emphasizing the centrality of the concepts of symbol and system. These lectures develop the foundation of this projected science through acute criticism of contemporary images of man and his nature."
Heinz Werner 1890-1964 Papers in Memoriam
Seymour Wapner and Bernard Kaplan
"This monograph consists of papers presented during the Spring of 1965 in honor of the late Heinz Werner."
Perceptual Development: An Investigation within the Framework of Sensory-Tonic Field Theory
Seymour Wapner and Heinz Werner
"The general problem area of this monograph is that of perceptual development. The study, in particular, deals with changes in spatial organization that occur during the course of growth."
On Expressive Language
"The ubiquity of "expressive language" and its protean character imposes on those who desire to study it the acceptance of a truly interdisciplinary view, i.e., the willingness to recognize the contributions that the perspectives of other disciplines offer to one's own studies, without striving to reduce all perspectives to one's own."
