Clean, tight, unmarked; light age tanning to pages; otherwise absolute minimal wear; appears unread; Originally published in 1938, this is the best concise statement on education ever published by John Dewey, the man acknowledged to be the pre-eminent educational theorist of the 20th century. Analyzing both "traditional" and "progressive" education, Dr. Dewey here insists that neither the old nor the new education is adequate and that each is miseducative because neither of them applies the principles of a carefully developed philosophy of experience. Many pages of this volume illustrate Dr. Dewey's ideas for a philosophy of experience and its relation to education. His philosophy, here expressed in its most essential, most readable form, predicates an American educational system that respects all sources of experience, one that offers a true learning situation that is both historical and social, both orderly and dynamic.
