Democracy and education : an introduction to the philosophy of education by John Dewey( Book )

470 editions published between 1916 and 2018 in 13 languages and held by 7,997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: John Dewey (1859-1952) believed that learning was active and schooling unnecessarily long and restrictive. His idea was that children came to school to do things and live in a community which gave them real, guided experiences which fostered their capacity to contribute to society. For example, Dewey believed that students should be involved in real-life tasks and challenges: maths could be learnt via learning proportions in cooking or figuring out how long it would take to get from one place to another by mule history could be learnt by experiencing how people lived, geography, what the climate was like, and how plants and animals grew, were important subjects Dewey had a gift for suggesting activities that captured the center of what his classes were studying. Dewey's education philosophy helped forward the "progressive education" movement, and spawned the development of "experiential education" programs and experiments

Human nature and conduct : an introduction to social psychology by John Dewey( Book )

133 editions published between 1921 and 2015 in English and held by 3,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book ... sets forth a belief that an understanding of habit and of different types of habit is the key to social psychology."--Preface
Reconstruction in philosophy by John Dewey( Book )

256 editions published between 1919 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 3,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author presents an interpretation of the reconstruction of ideas and ways of thought now going on in philosophy. While the lectures cannot avoid revealing the marks of the particular standpoint of their author, the aim is to exhibit the general contrasts between older and newer types of philosophic problems rather than to make a partisan plea in behalf of any one specific solution of these problems. Dewey has tried for the most part to set forth the forces which make intellectual reconstruction inevitable and to prefigure some of the lines upon which it must proceed.

Interest and effort in education by John Dewey( )

55 editions published between 1913 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 2,402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is a pleasant privilege to present the following monograph to the profession and the public, for there is no discussion which is more fundamental to the interpretation and reform of current teaching than this statement of the functions of interest and effort in education. Its active acceptance by teachers would bring about a complete transformation of classroom methods. Its appreciation by the patrons of the schools would greatly modify current criticism of the various programs of educational reform. The worth of this presentation is well summarized in the statement that, if teachers and parents could know intimately only one treatise on educational procedure, it is greatly to be doubted that any other could be found which would, within small compass, so effectively direct them to the points of view, the attitudes of mind, and, the methods of work which are essential to good teaching"--Introduction.

Ethics by John Dewey( Book )

116 editions published between 1908 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The significance of this text in Ethics lies in its effort to awaken a vital conviction of the genuine reality of moral problems and the value of reflective thought in dealing with them. To this purpose are subordinated the presentation in Part I: of historic material; the discussion in Part II: of the different types of theoretical interpretation, and the consideration, in Part III: of some typical social and economic problems which characterize the present"--Preface.

How we think by John Dewey( Book )

156 editions published between 1909 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our schools are troubled with a multiplication of studies, each in turn having its own multiplication of materials and principles. Our teachers find their tasks made heavier in that they have come to deal with pupils individually and not merely in mass. Unless these steps in advance are to end in distraction, some clew of unity, some principle that makes for simplification, must be found. -- Provided by publisher

The main emphasis falls upon freedom in science and the arts, especially literature and freedom. The cry of the human soul throughout the ages has been for liberty. Our culture must be permeated with that desire for freedom"--Taken from dust jacket section pasted on half-page
Essays in experimental logic by John Dewey( Book )

86 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1903 a volume was published by the University of Chicago Press, entitled Studies in Logical Theory, as a part of the 'Decennial Publications' of the University. The volume contained contributions by Drs. Thompson (now Mrs. Woolley), McLennan, Ashley, Gore, Heidel, Stuart, and Moore, in addition to four essays by the present writer who was also general editor of the volume. The edition of the Studies being recently exhausted, the Director of the Press suggested that my own essays be reprinted, together with other studies of mine in the same field. The various contributors to the original volume cordially gave assent, and the present volume is the outcome. Chaps, ii-v, inclusive, represent (with editorial revisions, mostly omissions) the essays taken from the old volume. The first and introductory chapter has been especially written for the volume. The other essays are in part reprinted and in part rewritten, with additions, from various contributions to philosophical periodicals. I should like to point out that the essay on 'Some Stages of Logical Thought' antedates the essays taken from the volume of Studies, having been published in 1900; the other essays have been written since then. I should also like to point out that the essays in their psychological phases are written from the standpoint of what is now termed a behavioristic psychology, though some of them antedate the use of that term as a descriptive epithet"--Preface.
