Two Key Theories in Education: Confucius and John Dewey
Bonnie, Michael G.
The following describes the philosophies of Confucius (Confucianism) and John Dewey (pragmatism/instrumentalism/experimentalism) and their views toward vocational, technical, general academic instruction, and the development of morals and values as espoused throughout Asia and America during a span of history from 551 BCE to 1949 CE. This is not intended to present an entire picture of design purpose and implementation, however, will focus on the paths of these originators of theory from their earliest. The purpose behind investigating these individuals and their work is to identify and acknowledge the intellectual genealogy of inter-related theories and the process of synthesis that make current prevailing philosophies and practices possible.
