John Dewey: Su filosofia y filosofia de la educacion (John Dewey: His Philosophy and Philosophy of Education). Working Paper.
Zoreda, Margaret Lee
This paper forms part of an investigation about how the philosophy of John Dewey (1859-1952) can illuminate the practice of the teaching of English as a foreign language. The paper seeks to interpret and synthesize John Dewey's philosophical works to construct a "Deweyian lens" with which to analyze and evaluate the field of the teaching of English as a foreign language. During his 60 years of professional life, Dewey wrote, without being systematic, more than 50 books, 750 articles, and innumerable speeches, reviews, and encyclopedic articles. The paper is limited to an examination of his books which deal explicitly with education. The paper discusses the fundamental affirmations of Dewey's philosophy, his philosophical anthropology, and his political philosophy. Then, it examines how these disciplines translate into an educational philosophy. The paper begins with a brief biography of John Dewey. (Contains 7 notes and 65 references, both in English and Spanish.) (BT)
