John Dewey was one of the most influential American philosophers, psychologists, and educators whose ideas have impacted education and social reform around the world. He is one of the founders with the philosophy of pragmatism and of functional psychology. He is in the row with the greatest thinkers including Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Karl Popper, Charles Peirce, John Mill, and William James. 

Dewey considered schools and civil society as the two fundamental elements that had to be constructively evolved by encouraging experimental intelligence and plurality. Dewey’s belief is that complete democracy is to be sustainable not just by giving and extending voting rights but also by ensuring that a fully formed public opinion is accomplished by communication among citizens, experts, and politicians with the full accountability and responsibility for the policies they adopt.

HUMAN NATURE AND CONDUCT is one of the important books by John Dewey about his definition and belief about what is new psychology.  In the book, John Dewey asserted new psychology as “The book does not purport to be a treatment of social psychology. But it seriously sets forth a belief that an understanding of habit and of different types of habit is the key to social psychology, while the operation of impulse and intelligence gives the key to individualized mental activity. But they are secondary to habit so that mind can be understood in the concrete only as a system of beliefs, desires and purposes which are formed in the interaction of biological aptitudes with a social environment.”

John Dewey’s influence has been felt in nearly every field of the humanities, sciences, and American corporate culture such learning by doing. The reasoning by John Dewey still remains as relevant today as it was then.   This book is one of the most important ones about the deepest thoughts of psychology framework by John Dewey, one of the greatest thinkers of psychology, science, and logic on the planet.
