about

Confirming his moniker as "America's philosopher of democracy," John Dewey engaged in a series of public debates over the course of his lifetime, vividly demonstrating how his thought translates into action. Unfortunately, much recent Dewey scholarship neglects to situate Dewey's ideas in the broader context of his activities and engagements as a public intellectual. This project charts a path through two of Dewey's actual debates with his contemporaries, Leon Trotsky and Robert Hutchins, to two reconstructed debates with contemporary intellectuals, E.D. Hirsch and Robert Talisse, both of whom criticized Dewey's ideas long after the American philosopher's death and, finally, to two recent debates, one on home schooling and the other on U.S. foreign policy.
