We, John Dewey's Audience of Today
da Cunha, Marcus Vinicius
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v48 n1 p23-35 2016
This article suggests that John Dewey's "Democracy and Education" does not describe education in an existing society, but it conveys a utopia, in the sense coined by Mannheim: utopian thought aims at instigating actions towards the transformation of reality, intending to attain a better world in the future. Today's readers of Dewey (his audience, according to Aristotle's Rhetoric) are responsible for choosing to act, or not to act, in order to realize his utopia.
