John Dewey

Overview

What are the key requirements for democracy? Some would say it's freedom of the press and the right to vote for elected representatives. But what good is the right to vote if people don't know anything about what they're voting on?

One of the fathers of modern educational theory, John Dewey was a leading American scholar of the twentieth century. Best known as an educational reformer, Dewey was also an influential philosopher and psychologist, writing on topics from logic to aesthetics.

In this 1916 treatise, the author examines the nature of education, rooted in our very existence as a social species. For Dewey, education is the cornerstone of not only democracy, but human society itself.

"A person is reasonable in the degree in which he is habitually open to seeing an event which immediately strikes his senses not as an isolated thing but in its connection with the common experience of mankind."
