Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Individualism Old and New is a serious study of public and cultural issues surrounding the place of the individual in a technologically advanced society. Dewey outlines the fear that personal creative potential will be stomped on by assembly-line monotony, political bureaucracy and an industrialized culture of uniformity. Dewey beoieves in the power of critical intelligence and says that individualism has in fact been offered a unique higher kevek of technological development upon which to grow, mature and redine itself. In Liberalism and Social Action Dewey looks at earlier forms of liberalism where the State sunction is to rotect its citizens while allowing free reign to social-economic forces. He believes that as a society matures, so must liberalism. He believes that liberalism must redefine itself in a world where government must play a dynamic role in creating an enviornment in which citizens can achieve their potential. Dewey's advocacy of a posiive role for government - a new liberalism - is a natural application of Hegel's dialetic. A Common Faith presents a compelling prescription for a union of religious and social ideals, inluding consistency in both idea and action. His thesis is thought provoking. This book should not only be read by social scientist, but also people if faith who wish to intelligently enhance their own faith. A Collector's Edition.
