Examining Dewey's evolving conception of liberalism, David Fott illuminates his subject's belief in democracy more fully than has ever been before. By comparing and contrasting Dewey's thought with that of Socrates, Fott convincingly casts doubt on claims that Dewey offers a defensible middle ground between moral absolutism and moral relativism.

About the Author:

David Fott is assistant professor of political science at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Review:

Fott's book is far more than an introduction to Dewey's thought. It is a comprehensive and pithy account of the strengths and weaknesses--philosophical, moral, and political--of Dewey's way of thinking. Faint praise it is to say that reading Fott is more enjoyable and illuminating than reading Dewey. But it is also true that those who have found life too short to spend much time with Dewey can benefit from this book. This book's able defense of the truth deserves a wide and attentive audience. (The Review Of Politics)

What makes this possible is Dewey's beleif in the intrinsic connection between science and democracy, as David Fott stresses in his useful study of Dewey's political thought, John Dewey: America's Philosopher of Democracy. (The Weekly Standard)
