"Democracy and Education": Reconstruction of and through Education
Campbell, James
Educational Theory, v66 n1-2 p39-53 Apr 2016
While focusing on "Democracy and Education," James Campbell attempts in this essay to offer a synthesis of the full range of John Dewey's educational thought. Campbell explores in particular Dewey's understanding of the relationship between democracy and education by considering both his ideas on the reconstruction of education and on the role of education in broader social reconstruction. Throughout his philosophical work, Campbell concludes, Dewey offers us a vision of a society self-consciously striving to enable its members to live fully educative lives.
