Dewey and Education presents Dewey’s perspectives on moral psychology and development, human nature, and democratic community-building as they inform the influential philosopher’s deep commitment to educational reform. In this personal yet far-reaching account, Walter Feinberg relates Dewey’s work both to contemporary social and political affairs and to his own philosophical and political commitments. Written for scholars and students of the Philosophy of Education, Educational Policy Studies, and Political Theory, this book is indispensable as a guide to Dewey’s influence on democratic education.
