Williams, Jerry L. – Education and Culture, 2016
This essay examines the poetry of John Dewey, 101 poems in total. Characteristic of the rhymed and metered poetry of the period, they show a very human side of Dewey. This analysis argues that many of his poems deal with existential themes--love, finitude, and God, for example. On a deeper level these poems are also show connections to Dewey's…

Hanes, Jay Michael; Weisman, Eleanor – Education and Culture, 2016
Two artist-educators analyzed their creative process informed by John Dewey's concepts regarding the act of expression. The essay interweaves a description of their performance piece with a discussion of conceptual processes, including intermediality and collaboration as crucial in art making, learning, and pedagogical efficacy. Both the creation…

d'Agnese, Vasco – Education and Culture, 2016
The aim of this paper is to discuss the role of art in Deweyan thought, making a case for the relationship among art, experience, and education. I will do so by drawing on both Deweyan works--primarily "Art as Experience" and chapter nine of "Experience and Nature"--and scholarly literature devoted to the issue. Based on those…

Nautiyal, Jaishikha – Education and Culture, 2016
Can everyday spaces, such as coffee shops bustling with rapid activity, promise an aesthetic experience that remains untapped and undertheorized? If so, what kinds of communicative habits make the coffee shop experience aesthetically wholesome? To this end, I engage and extend American pragmatist John Dewey's mission of recovering aesthetic…

Uhrmacher, P. Bruce; Moroye, Christy; Conrad, Bradley – Education and Culture, 2016
The purpose of this paper is to cross-examine Dewey's ideas on religious and aesthetic experiences, and Csikszentmihalyi's theory of flow experience. To achieve this end, we offer an analytic framework for evaluating experiences: triggers, characterizations, and import. In using this framework, we not only more deeply examine these ideas of…

Fesmire, Steven – Education and Culture, 2016
Educational politics in the United States is entangled in the notion that the foremost mission of education is, in the infamous words of Gov. Scott Walker's proposed revision of the University of Wisconsin's mission, "to develop human resources to meet the state's workforce needs." This general outlook is not an outlier. It is typical of…

Dotts, Brian W. – Education and Culture, 2016
This article presents a novel account of a key concept in John Dewey's reconstructionist theory specifically related to the nucleus underlying his idea of democracy: intersubjective communication, what Dewey called the "democratic criterion." Many theorists relate democracy to a form of rule. Consequently, discussions of democracy tend…

Simpson, Douglas J.; Sacken, Donal M. – Education and Culture, 2016
In this study, we examine Dewey's understanding of ethical principles by identifying a number of his primary emphases, including how he thought principles may be reconstructed and employed in schools. We do this by (a) explicating how he understood the reconstruction of general, universal, and absolute ethical claims; (b) anticipating how some…

Eastman, Nicholas J.; Boyles, Deron – Education and Culture, 2015
This essay situates John Dewey in the context of the founding of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) in 1915. We argue that the 1915 Declaration of Principles, together with World War I, provides contemporary academics important historical justification for rethinking academic freedom and faculty governance in light of…

Jones, Anne G.; Risku, Michael T. – Education and Culture, 2015
To satisfy the demands of society, the scholar-­practitioner in today's complex world of education must juggle various factors that are related to one another: practice, poiesis, or the creative act, culture, knowledge, and learning. These demands include adherence to education, law, politics, economics, ethics, equity, and social dynamics. The…

Frank, Jeff – Education and Culture, 2015
Harper Lee's novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" is taught in countless public schools and is beloved by many teachers and future teachers. Embedded within this novel--interestingly--is a strong criticism of an approach to education mockingly referred to as the "Dewey Decimal System." In this essay I explore Lee's criticism of…

Furman, Cara E. – Education and Culture, 2015
In this paper, I connect John Dewey's notion that growth occurs through interaction with a diverse community to contemporary discussions of inclusive education. I highlight the importance of materials that offer different access points, the chance for students to listen to one another, and the teacher's openness to each child's potential. Though I…

Weible, Davide – Education and Culture, 2015
The present research focuses on one aspect of John Dewey's teaching methodology--the role of imagination--that, though not fully developed into a coherent theory within his writings on education, and hence underestimated in the subsequent secondary literature, stands up to criticism and still proves to be viable. In the second section of the…

Mayer, Susan Jean – Education and Culture, 2015
As a philosopher, Dewey relied on others to represent and realize the practical implications of his ideas for classroom life. While many educators have ably done so, the empirically grounded markers and measures that Dewey saw as necessary for strengthening progressive practice and communicating with the broader field remain underdeveloped. Here,…
