THE CONCEPTS OF KNOWLEDGE OF PEIRCE AND DEWEY--THE RELATION TO EDUCATION.
COOPER, TED L.
A RATIONALE AND A THEORETICAL SKETCH WERE DEVELOPED FOR EMPLOYING A PRAGMATISM DERIVED DIRECTLY FROM THE WORK OF CHARLES PEIRCE AS A PRIMARY CRITICAL TOOL FOR EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY. TO THIS END, THE AUTHOR SUMMARIZED THE PRINCIPAL EPISTEMOLOGICAL CONCEPTS OF PRAGMATISM AND OF ITS OFFSPRING, DEWEY'S EXPERIMENTALISM. HE ALSO APPRAISED BRIEFLY THE MAJOR DIFFERENCES OF PEIRCE'S SEMINAL THEORY AND DEWEY'S ADAPTATIONS THAT INFLUENCED LATER DEVELOPMENTS IN EDUCATIONAL THEORY. FINALLY, HE POSITED A CONCORDANCE BETWEEN PRAGMATIC EPISTEMOLOGY AND COGNITIVE CONSISTENCY THEORIES AS ILLUSTRATIVE OF ONE OF SEVERAL DIMENSIONS ALONG WHICH CONTINUING STUDY COULD PROCEED. (JH)
