9780826513946: Dewey's Logical Theory: New Studies and Interpretations (The Vanderbilt Library of American Philosophy)

Despite the resurgence of interest in the philosophy of John Dewey, his work on logical theory has received relatively little attention. The essays in this collection address many aspects of Dewey's philosophy of logic, from his work at the beginning of the twentieth century to the culmination of his logical thought in the 1938 volume, Logic: The Theory of Inquiry. All the essays are original to this volume and are written by leading Dewey scholars. Ranging from discussions of propositional theory to logic's social and ethical implications, these essays clarify often misunderstood or misrepresented aspects of Dewey's work, while emphasizing the seminal role of logic to Dewey's philosophical endeavors. This collection breaks new ground in its relevance to contemporary philosophy of logic and epistemology and pays special attention to applications in ethics and moral philosophy.

About the Author:

F. Thomas Burke is an American philosopher who teaches at the University of South Carolina. His work interprets contemporary philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, and philosophical logic through the lens of classical American pragmatism. He earned his B.A. from the University of New Mexico and his Ph.D. from Stanford University.

Review:

"This excellent collection indicates that Dewey's logic is finally being understood and that a way has been opened to healthy criticism and extension of Dewey's theories. Authors here engage not only with the mature Dewey (of the Logic) but also with the younger Dewey of Studies in Logical Theory and Essays in Experimental Logic; they tackle implications as broad as the future of philosophy and as precise as the role of measurement in inquiry. In all cases, their penetrating insights make Dewey's logic more comprehensible, more fascinating, and more useful." --David Hildebrand, Metaphilosophy

Book Description Vanderbilt University Press, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Despite the resurgence of interest in the philosophy of John Dewey, his work on logical theory has received relatively little attention. Ironically, Dewey s logic was his first and last love. The essays in this collection pay tribute to that love by addressing Dewey s philosophy of logic, from his work at the beginning of the twentieth century to the culmination of his logical thought in the 1938 volume, Logic: The Theory of Inquiry. All the essays are original to this volume and are written by leading Dewey scholars.
