An Analysis of John Dewey's Educational Writings Interpreted with Reference to His Concept of Change.
Doll, William Elder, Jr.
John Dewey's educational and philosophical writings are broadly known, but not well-known. This study of his work is organized around his concept of change. (Nothing is permanent, all is change, permanence itself being a pseudonym for that which changes slowly. Man is unique in his ability to understand and control change for his benefit. Thus, it is the task of education to develop each individual's methodology for understanding and controlling change.) "Change" provides the framework for the present analysis which examines Dewey's detailed philosophical position as exposed in his 1939 rejoinder to his critics, including his position with respect to experience, metaphysics, science, society, value, and knowledge. His educational writings are discussed in three historical divisions: the Chicago period, the theoretical period of Democracy and Education, and the progressive education period. (Author/AL)
