Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this landmark work on public education, Dewey discusses methods of providing quality public education in a democratic society. First published close to 90 years ago, it sounded the call for a revolution in education, stressing growth, experience, and activity as factors that promote a democratic character in students.

Book News Annotation:

<:st> This is an unabridged reproduction of American philosopher Dewey's 1916 influential treatise on the philosophy of progressive education. For the founder of philosophical pragmatism, the purpose of education was intimately connected with the role of the citizen in democracy and he believed it should be structured to encourage the associational and communal aspects of democratic society.
