Becoming John Dewey: Dilemmas of a Philosopher and by Thomas Dalton

By Thomas Dalton

As one in every of America’s "public intellectuals," John Dewey was once engaged in a lifelong fight to appreciate the human brain and the character of human inquiry. in keeping with Thomas C. Dalton, the profitable pursuit of this undertaking demanded that Dewey develop into greater than only a thinker; it pressured him to turn into completely accustomed to the theories and techniques of physics, psychology, and neurosciences, in addition to develop into engaged in academic and social reform. Tapping archival resources and Dewey’s broad correspondence, Dalton unearths that Dewey had shut own and highbrow ties to scientists and students who helped shape the mature expression of his proposal. Dewey’s relationships with F. M. Alexander, Henri Matisse, Niels Bohr, Myrtle McGraw, and Lawrence ok. Frank, between others, convey how Dewey dispersed pragmatism all through American idea and culture.
