Inquiry and Education offers a lucid and challenging interpretation of John Dewey, his critics, and his supporters. Thematically organized, the book focuses on four of Dewey’s preeminent concerns—inquiry, growth, community, and democracy—and their close association with formal education. This book fills a void in the literature on Dewey by providing the first critical exploration of the philosopher’s talk of education and how this fits into his overall philosophy. James Scott Johnston develops Dewey’s thinking and suggests that Dewey’s theory of inquiry is best described as self-correcting and context-bound.
"Johnston’s deft analysis of the charges advanced against Dewey by his many critics expands our understanding of the relation of his educational theories to his wider philosophical project." — Larry Hickman, Director of the Center for Dewey Studies, Southern Illinois University Carbondale
"I like how the author lays out the richness of the Deweyan tradition as it has impacted the philosophical debates of the twentieth century." — Kathleen Knight Abowitz, Miami UniversityAbout the Author:
James Scott Johnston is Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Education at Queen’s University, Ontario.
