Three experts collaborate in this passionate and rewarding dialogue on the legacy of the great American philosopher and educator John Dewey (1859–1952). Focused on growth and the creation of value within the context of real life, Dewey’s pragmatic philosophy shares much with humanistic Buddhism. These similarities, which arise throughout the book, add richness to a dialogue already overflowing with faith in our capacity to find common ground and expand human well being in our rapidly globalizing world. For Dewey, individual and social potential alike are unlimited. Readers will come away ready to embrace rather than fear the increasing complexity of our world.

Editorial Reviews

"Both Dewey scholars and initiates to his work will be fascinated by the discussion of connections between his ideas and those of Tsunesaburo Makiguchi, the 'value creator.' The collegial relationship that both Dewey and Makiguchi described between mentor and disciple (teacher and student) is especially valuable in this age of dull, one-way, authoritarian pedagogy. Readers will be encouraged to renew efforts to establish genuine education in the United States and abroad."  —Nel Noddings, author, Caring: A Relational Approach to Ethics and Moral Education
