Miller, Dr. Bruner established the [Harvard University] Center for Cognitive Studies in 1960; For the past 30 years, while teaching at New York University's law school, Dr. Bruner explored the idea of storytelling as a fundamental way of understanding the nature of the world around us; Jerome Seymour Bruner was born Oct. 1, 1915, in New York City; received master's and doctoral degrees in psychology from Harvard in 1939 and 1941, respectively; joined the Harvard faculty in 1945, then left in 1972 to teach at the University of Oxford in England; returned to the United States in 1980, teaching first at the New School in New York, then joining NYU)
