Dewey (The Routledge Philosophers) by Steven Fesmire

By Steven Fesmire

John Dewey (1859 - 1952) was once the dominant voice in American philosophy in the course of the global Wars, the nice melancholy, and the nascent years of the chilly battle. With a qualified occupation spanning 3 generations and a profile that no public highbrow has operated on within the U.S. in view that, Dewey's biographer Robert Westbrook thoroughly describes him as "the most crucial thinker in glossy American history."

In this impressive and interesting creation, Steven Fesmire starts with a bankruptcy on Dewey’s existence and works, sooner than discussing and assessing Dewey's key principles around the significant disciplines in philosophy; together with metaphysics, epistemology, aesthetics, ethics, academic philosophy, social-political philosophy, and non secular philosophy.

This is a useful advent and advisor to this deeply influential thinker and his legacy, and crucial analyzing for somebody coming to Dewey's paintings for the 1st time.
