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
