520    "John Dewey was America's greatest public philosopher. A 
       prolific and influential writer for both scholarly and 
       general audiences, he stands out for the remarkable 
       breadth of his contributions. Dewey was a founder of a 
       distinctly American philosophical tradition, pragmatism, 
       and he spoke out widely on the most important questions of
       his day. He was a progressive thinker whose deep 
       commitment to democracy led him to courageous stances on 
       issues such as war, civil liberties, and racial, class, 
       and gender inequalities. This book gathers the clearest 
       and most powerful of Dewey's public writings and shows how
       they continue to speak to the challenges we face today. An
       introductory essay and short introductions to each of the 
       texts discuss the current relevance and significance of 
       Dewey's work and legacy. The book includes forty-six 
       essays on topics such as democracy in the United States, 
       political power, education, economic justice, science and 
       society, and philosophy and culture. These essays inspire 
       optimism for the possibility of a more humane public and 
       political culture, in which citizens share in the pursuit 
       of lifelong education through participation in democratic 
       life. America's Public Philosopher reveals John Dewey as a
       powerful example for scholars seeking to address a wider 
       audience and a much-needed voice for all readers in search
       of intellectual and moral leadership"--|cProvided by
