"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?"
