Dewey on Rousseau: Natural Development as the Aim of Education.
Fennell, Jon
Journal of Educational Thought, v13 n2 p109-20 Aug 1979
This essay shows that Dewey's critique of Rousseau's reference to human nature as a source of educational aims fails due to Dewey's incomplete understanding of Rousseau. More broadly significant is Dewey's neglect of the crucial role assumed by the Natural in both educational theorizing and justification in general. (Author/SJL)
