The Paideia Proposal: Adler's Sugar-Coated Elitism?
Blank, Kermit J.
Tennessee Education, v13 n3 p10-16 Win 1984
Peruses Adler's Paideia Proposal and its use of excerpts from Dewey's writings on democracy, focusing on the meaning of democracy. Analyzes Adler's and Dewey's views from a traditional philosophic standpoint (neo-Thomistic versus experimentalist), contrasts them from an educational philosophic vantage (perennialism versus progressivisim), and examines their contrasting educational ideologies.
