John Dewey and the High Tide of American Liberalism

Description

Considered America's most famous philosopher, John Dewey was revered by liberal educators, but deplored by conservatives. He was, however, universally acknowledged as his country's intellectual voice. Dewey's mature philosophy appealed to a vast audience who felt a deep need to believe that science would not undermine faith, that radicalism did not mean chaos, that belief in individuals did not lead to wild individualism, and that trusting in society did not lead to an oppressive collectivism. This book is an examination of Dewey's ideas and influence, offering new insights into his character and achievements.
