Summary
Based on original sources, this book tells the full story of the life and times of the eminent American philosopher, pragmatist, education reformer, and man of letters, John Dewey. During his lifetime (1859-1952), he was regarded by poll after poll as one of the ten most important thinkers in American history. His philosophy, Pragmatism, has been the distinctive American philosophy during the last fifty years. His work on education is famous worldwide and is still influential today. Dewey rejected old-fashioned schooling and believed in multiculturalism and independent thinking. His University of Chicago Laboratory School (founded in 1896), still thrives today and is a model for schools all over the world. "The Education of John Dewey" shows the unity of Deweys life and work. Jay Martin recounts Dewey's childhood years, family history, religious influences, and influential friendships, and reassesses his legacy. The book highlights the importance of the women in Deweys life, especially his mother, wife and daughters, but also others, including the reformer Jane Addams and the novelist Anzia Yezierska
