Dewey's Theory of Inquiry and Reflective Administration.
Willower, Donald J.
Journal of Educational Administration, v32 n1 p5-22 1994
Presents John Dewey's version of pragmatism and discusses implications for reflective administration. Dewey's pragmatist perspective represents a severe challenge to subjectivists and critical theorists. Deweyan science emphasizes the creative, human, and fallible, but self-corrective, aspects of scientific inquiry. For administrators, reflective processes can help frame decisions representing choices for competing values. (Contains 36 references.) (MLH)
