Nature, Education and Things
Rømer, Thomas Aastrup
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v32 n6 p641-652 Nov 2013
In this essay it is argued that the educational philosophy of John Dewey gains in depth and importance by being related to his philosophy of nature, his metaphysics. The result is that any experiental process is situated inside an event, an existence, a thing, and I try to interpret this "thing" as schools or major cultural events such as the French revolution. This basic view is correlated to Dewey's concept of transaction, of experience and finally, it is related to a discussion of methods in education.
