Philosophy with Guts
Sherman, Robert R.
Critical Questions in Education, v5 n2 p68-75 Sum 2014
Western philosophy, from Plato on, has had the tendency to separate feeling and thought, affect and cognition. This article argues that a strong philosophy (metaphorically, with "guts") utilizes both in its work. In fact, a "complete act of thought" also will include action. Feeling motivates thought, which formulates ideas, that action tests in practice. This idea of philosophy draws on insights from John Dewey and several poets and other writers. Some implications are drawn for education.
