About the Author:

John Dewey (1859–1952) was an American philosopher, psychologist and educational reformer whose ideas have been influential in education and social reform. Dewey was an important early developer of the philosophy of pragmatism and one of the founders of functional psychology. He was a major representative of progressive education and liberalism. In 1894 Dewey joined the newly founded University of Chicago (1894–1904) where he developed his belief in an empirically based theory of knowledge, becoming associated with the newly emerging Pragmatic philosophy. His time at the University of Chicago resulted in four essays collectively entitled Thought and its Subject-Matter, which was published with collected works from his colleagues at Chicago under the collective title Studies in Logical Theory (1903). During that time Dewey also initiated the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, where he was able to actualize the pedagogical beliefs that provided material for his first major work on education, The School and Social Progress (1899). In 1899, Dewey was elected president of the American Psychological Association. From 1904 until his retirement in 1930 he was professor of philosophy at both Columbia University and Columbia University's Teachers College. In 1905 he became president of the American Philosophical Association. He was a longtime member of the American Federation of Teachers.

Book Description The University of Chicago Press, United States, 1974. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Univ of Chicago ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this collection, Reginald D. Archambault has assembled John Dewey s major writings on education. He has also included basic statements of Dewey s philosophic position that are relevant to understanding his educational views. These selections are useful not only for understanding Dewey s pedagogical principles, but for illustrating the important relation between his educational theory and the principles of his general philosophy.Professor Archambault has divided the selections into seven general categories: Philosophy and Education, Ethics and Education, Aesthetics and Education, Science and Education, Psychology and Education, Society and Education, and Principles of Pedagogy. In his Introduction, the editor discusses these categories, influences on Dewey s writing, and important concepts in the philosopher s theory of education. He emphasizes that in order to understand Dewey s educational writings, it is essential to understand his conception of science.The volume contains twenty-nine selections, all of which are complete essays or chapters from Dewey s major works. This comprehensive volume should prove valuable to philosophers, educational theorists, teachers, and students who want a wide selection of Dewey s educational thought.As Professor Archambault writes, These principles, and the educational prescriptions and controversies that spring from them, are as vital today as they were when they exploded on the educational horizon at the turn of the century. We should be able, with distance and fresh perspective, to reconstruct them, to use a favorite term of Dewey s, so that their value for us can be revitalized. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780226143903
