Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This edition brings Dewey's educational theory into sharp focus, framing his two classic works by frank assessments, past and present, of the practical applications of Dewey's ideas. In addition to a substantial introduction in which Philip W. Jackson explains why more of Dewey's ideas haven't been put into practice, this edition restores a "lost" chapter, dropped from the book by Dewey in 1915.

Synopsis:

Includes the author's classic treatises outlining his revolutionary philosophy of education.

About the Author

His many works on psychology, education, and philosophy include: On Education: Selected Writings, also published by the University of Chicago Press.
