Pragmatism as a Philosophy of Education in the Hispanic World: A Response
Pappas, Gregario Fernando; Garrison, Jim
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v24 n6 p515-529 Nov 2005
We concentrate on four questions among the many posed by this special collection of papers on Pragmatism and the Hispanic world. They are, first, what took pragmatism beyond the borders of the United States and into the Hispanic world? Next, what are the ideas of Dewey (or pragmatism) that have had the greatest impact on Hispanic culture? Third, what are the past and present obstacles that has kept the Hispanic world from using pragmatism to deal with many of their educational and social problems? Finally, why does pragmatism still hold great promise and potential for the Hispanic world?
