From the Back Cover:

'This book not only revises the interpretation of Dewey's ethics but also has relevance to recent discussions about the possibility of naturalistic, experimental ethics. Dewey's Ethical Thought will be indispensable for those who seek to understand John Dewey and American culture.'

Review:

A careful, incisive, and thorough study. . . . It is based almost exclusively on Dewey's own writings; secondary works are cited rarely and chiefly for the purpose of rebutting them. Historians interested in ideas will find here an internalist history of the development of a major thinker.―Journal of American History

"This account of the development of Dewey's ethics, with an emphasis on his early and middle writings, is the first book-length treatment of this subject. Welchman . . . follows Dewey's ethical thought from its beginnings in idealism through the mature statement of his pragmatic instrumentalism in Human Nature and Conduct. . . . A lucid, fair, and meticulously researched analysis of the development of Dewey's ethical thought and a valuable resource for anyone working in American philosophy or cultural studies."―Choice

"Welchman is an excellent interpreter of the early and middle Dewey. . . fresh and provocative. . . Welchman does what few Deweyan interpreters have done; she analyzes his thinking."―Metaphilosophy

"Welchman's. . . account of Dewey's ethics moves along briskly. It is compact without affecting quality."―Abraham Edel, International Studies in Philosophy, 2000

"This book not only revises the interpretation of Dewey's ethics but also has relevance to recent discussions about the possibility of naturalistic, experimental ethics. Dewey's Ethical Thought will be indispensable for those who seek to understand John Dewey and American culture."―Andrew J. Reck, Tulane University

"There are no detailed studies of Dewey's early and transitional ethical thought, and Welchman has executed the task unusually well. Her account of the evolution of Dewey's conception of the nature of science is both novel and eye-opening. On questions relating to Dewey's transitional period, Welchman's work is superior to that of any other scholar."―James Gouinlock, Emory University
