The essential Dewey by John Dewey( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to being one of the greatest technical philosophers of the twentieth century, John Dewey (1859-1952) was an educational innovator, a Progressive Era reformer, and one of America's last great public intellectuals. Dewey's insights into the problems of public education, immigration, the prospects for democratic government, and the relation of religious faith to science are as fresh today as when they were first published. His penetrating treatments of the nature and function of philosophy, the ethical and aesthetic dimensions of life, and the role of inquiry in human experience are of increasing relevance at the turn of the 21st century. Based on the award-winning 37-volume critical edition of Dewey's work, The Essential Dewey presents for the first time a collection of Dewey's writings that is both manageable and comprehensive. The volume includes essays and book chapters that exhibit Dewey's intellectual development over time; the selection represents his mature thinking on every major issue to which he turned his attention. Eleven part divisions cover: Dewey in Context; Reconstructing Philosophy; Evolutionary Naturalism; Pragmatic Metaphysics; Habit, Conduct, and Language; Meaning, Truth, and Inquiry; Valuation and Ethics; The Aims of Education; The Individual, the Community, and Democracy; Pragmatism and Culture: Science and Technology, Art and Religion; and Interpretations and Critiques. Taken as a whole, this collection provides unique access to Dewey's understanding of the problems and prospects of human existence and of the philosophical enterprise

Reading Dewey : interpretations for a postmodern generation by Larry A Hickman( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Dewey (1859-1952), hailed during his lifetime as "America's Philosopher," is now generally recognized as one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century. Dewey's groundbreaking contributions to philosophy, psychology, and educational theory continue to animate research on the cutting edge of those fields. The twelve original interpretive essays included in this volume locate Dewey's major works within their historical context and present a timely reevaluation of the diverse aspects of his broad philosophical reach. They explore his contributions to logic, ethics, social and political philosophy, metaphysics, and the philosophies of religion, art, and the human sciences. They also underscore the relevance of Dewey's work to the dominant strands of modern philosophy and to the essential debates of continental philosophy - from phenomenology to post-structuralism, and to feminist thought
John Dewey -- his life and work by Larry A Hickman( Visual )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Dewey wrote extensively about philosophy, psychology, education, political science, and the arts. In his very full 92 years of life (1859-1952), he not only wrote about the breadth of life, he participated in it as a teacher, social critic, political activist and involved family man. Although Dewey lived in a different era of history, many of his concerns are very relevant to life today. Maintaining a democracy in the face of diverse ethnic values, educating the young to participate fully in the life of their community, and expanding individual perceptions through participation in the arts were among the issues he examined. This video introduces students to his philosophy and his critical studies of education, the arts and the implications of democracy for the lives of individuals and their communities

Confines of democracy : essays on the philosophy of Richard J. Bernstein by Ramón del Castillo( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topics addressed by Richard J. Bernstein in his extensive and illuminating work span the stream of contemporary thought in several directions: ethics, politics, epistemology, philosophy of history, and social theory. In reflecting on them Bernstein has played an intermediary role between the most recognizable product of American philosophical tradition, i.e. Pragmatism, and such central trends in European 20th century thought as Marxism, Psychoanalysis, Critical Theory, and Hermeneutics. In this volume a host of prominent scholars from the United States, Europe, and Latin America pays tribute to Bernstein's lifelong reflection on such present human problems as: the achievements and the dilemmas of modern societies, the legitimation crisis of democracy, the uses and abuses of public space, the role of scientific knowledge and technology in shaping the modern life, the ethical and political interplay between identity and community, and the preconditions and limits of understanding in multicultural contexts.--
