Cunningham, Craig A. – Education and Culture, 2009
The fifty years since the 100th anniversary of John Dewey's birth have marked the emergence of new technologies that afford a wealth of previously unknown approaches to learning, making it not only possible but practicable for Dewey's educational vision of participatory learning to be realized on a mass scale.

Kim, Jiwon – Education and Culture, 2009
This article opens by raising a need to examine today's moral education for a new century.

Stengel, Barbara – Education and Culture, 2009
John Dewey was born into a world ripe for philosophical reconstruction, as scientific advancement, technological innovation, and social reinterpretation reconfigured the intellectual landscape.

Saito, Naoko – Education and Culture, 2009
The purpose of this paper, states the author, is to revive and reconstruct John Dewey's pragmatism so that it becomes an alerting and inspiring voice in response to the nihilistic crisis of today's democracy and education. In other words this is a Deweyan task of reconstruction in philosophy, and it prompts the present endeavor in the continuing…

Waks, Leonard – Education and Culture, 2009
Cosmopolitanism in 2009 is arguably the philosophical and social counterpart of the progressivism of 1909. In this article, the author argues that John Dewey's pragmatism has (at least) two valuable lessons for the theory and practice of cosmopolitanism. After situating Dewey in the current discussion of cosmopolitanism and locating this…

Wahman, Jessica – Education and Culture, 2009
It has been said that pragmatism's "merely instrumental" truths fail to motivate radical change whereas absolute ideals make excellent guiding and driving forces for justice. However, in "Radical Equations: Math Literacy and Civil Rights," Robert Moses speaks of the radical success of pragmatic principles, used in the Civil Rights Movement, that…

Meadows, Elizabeth; Blatchford, Katherine – Education and Culture, 2009
Excellent, democratic education that furthers each person's potential, success and happiness for her own and others' well-being is not yet widespread in the U.S. today. Dewey's The Public and Its Problems has much to say about the possibilities and challenges of achieving this goal. This paper examines Dewey's ideas about how a public for…

Bassey, Magnus O. – Education and Culture, 2009
Malcolm X in his autobiography claimed that every experience he had as a youth was educative. Such a claim confronts us, as educators, with a serious dilemma, that is, whether all transformations and human experiences are educative. In reviewing John Dewey's major writings on the topic, the author concludes that some of Malcolm X's early…

Hickman, Larry A. – Education and Culture, 2009
There seems to be an unwritten agreement among most Americans that there are three topics that are best avoided in polite company: (1) politics; (2) personal finances; and (3) religion. The American reluctance to discuss religion with acquaintances at a dinner party or picnic may be a part of a larger phenomenon: a manifestation of the secularism…

He lived and worked virtually his entire life in the United States. He had a lifelong respect for American traditions in poetry, literature, philosophy, and more. He was active in…
