John Dewey on History Education and the Historical Method
Fallace, Thomas D.
Education and Culture, v26 n2 Article 4 2010
This essay constructs a comprehensive view of Dewey's approach to history, the historical method, and history education. Drawing on Dewey's approach to the subject at the University of Chicago Laboratory School (1896-1904), Dewey's chapter on the historical method in "Logic: A Theory of Inquiry" (1938), and a critique of Dewey's philosophy of history that appeared in the "American Historical Review" and the published response to this attack by Dewey's colleagues (1954), the author argues that Dewey consistently approached history in genetic and historicist terms. (Contains 45 notes.)
