The dualisms between theory and practice, individual and society, intellectual and manual, as identified by John Dewey in the 19th century, find their direct correspondence in the writings of a contemporary Christian writer of his era, Ellen G.

John Dewey was a progressive theorist, a pragmatist, a philosopher, and arguably the most influential American educator of the twentieth century.

I use a combination…

Webb, Sheila – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
Chapter Eight of "Interpreting Kant in Education" again illustrates the tendency in education theory to attribute to Kant a radical subjectivism, an all-powerful mind, that leads to accusations of intellectualism and a disembedded conception of mind, detached from real life. Interpretations of Kant's terms, previously introduced from…

Horner, Jeffrey Michael – Religious Education, 2017
James Estep's integration of Vygotsky's work on the Zone of Proximal Development into Christian education and pedagogy falls short of a distinctly evangelical form of integration.
