John Dewey was an influential thinker and educator

John Dewey was an influential thinker and educator. The New York Times once called him "America's philosopher. Larry Hickman is director of the Center for Dewey Studies at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. Dewey described his ideas in books including "Democracy and Education," "The School and Society" and "How We Think. Celebrations took place not only in the United States, but also at two universities in Beijing and in Croatia, Italy and Poland. And that's the VOA Special English Education Report, written by Nancy Steinbach.

John Dewey was Americas most influential philosopher. He wanted philosophy to rise above old tired disputes to address new, more vital questions and problems. Deweys views are known as "pragmatism," which emphasizes action and results. He believed that knowledge and ethics, as well as art and religion, live only in the daily practice of ones life. Philosophy isn't a system of beliefs but a practical, empirical method of inquiry. It is one with education, which continually develops and renews the capacity for new habits.

Dewey believed that the scientific method can be extended to human affairs. Properly applied, it enables us to organize society to enhance personal happiness and community cooperation. Democracy, for Dewey, is more a way of life than a form of government; each person should help create and direct the social forces that affect our lives.

Dewey is one of the primary figures associated with philosophy of pragmatism. Pragmatists developed their philosophy around the idea that the function of thought is as an instrument or tool for prediction, action, and problem solving.

William James (1842-1910) convinced Dewey to treat consciousness pragmatically and scientifically as an active objective human trait and James and Dewey insist that the value and truth of a theory depend on its results rather than its source. Dewey says that philosophy cannot provide certainty; its truths aren't perfect, final or eternal and that philosophy has to become primarily a method rather than a system.

In pragmatisms, truth means the same thing as it does in science; Ideas which themselves are but parts of our experience become true just in so far as they help us to get into satisfactory relations with other parts of our experience. What in short is the truth's cash value in experiential terms? True Ideas are those we can assimilate, validate, corroborate and verify! Truth happens to an idea it becomes true is made true by events - its verity is in fact an event a process `its verification', "Truth is made and inquiry makes it". We seek truths that are justified by inquiry - the essential difference between truth and dogma

"Human beings think, reason and inquire in an effort to reach their goals". Dewey argues that Inquiry is an iterative process and that we cannot derive the way we ought to think from some laws of logic or rules of reason. Instead our logic and rules must be derived from actual inquiries. Any deficiencies of inquiry can be corrected only by further inquiry. Inquiry can improve itself by itself. A pattern of inquiry may illuminate and improve actual inquiries but it cannot abstractly deduce or prejudge them

Philosophical issues must be framed in terms drawn from actual experience, conclusions must be stated in terms of experience and they must be verified or falsified in experience. "Philosophy is inherently criticism, a criticism of criticism as it were".

Pragmatists believe that "experience is neither the object experienced nor the subject that experiences. Subject and objected are unified and related; they are partial features within the ongoing unity that is experience." An organism does not live in an environment it lives by means of an environment.

Dewey says that "Democracy is belief in the ability of Human experience to generate the aims and methods by which further experience will grow in ordered richness. Democracy is faith that the process of experience is more important than any special result obtained"

Democracy is a way of life rather than a form of government and seeks and requires its citizens to have freely shared lives & values. He believes that philosophy is one with education and experience and that education, inquiry and democracy mutually imply each other. Democracy doesn't perpetuate itself automatically it demands persistent social inquiry, imaginative vision and courageous action.

Dewey believes we educate when we meaningfully renew social life through communication and that the success of any social institution is its effect in enlarging and improving experience. Dewey says that "the ultimate goal of education is growth"

Dewey says that we must revamp our idea of liberalisation by developing historical prospective & acknowledging that today's social conditions have made liberal's traditional theories obsolete, using renascent liberalism to reconstruct traditional liberal values in light of current social realities and actively reconstructing social institutions practices and relations.

Dewey believes that Liberalisation is made up of theories and actions that support Intelligence, Individualism and Freedom and opposes ignorance mere authority and violence. He considers that individuality is "the self-realisation and the continuous development of one's potential", that freedom is "the power to act in accord with choice". Dewey's renascent liberalism is committed to developing the social conditions that permit real individuality and freedom to develop.

Modern philosopher Dewey shines a light on philosophy itself, on life, on the human condition, on the educational driver of democracy, on relevant philosophic thought for today: "The point of philosophy is not to make theory practical, the point is to make practice intelligent" writes Dewey. Dewey's views on religion are urgent lessons for the sad, warring world today. His ideas on art for all people's enjoyment are comforting. And his ideas on science and patterns of inquiry are so clear and sensible. This two hour short audiobook is very compact, comprehensive and it collects together Dewey's major conclusions. My only quibble is that a print version is not available for download yet. This is perhaps the easiest way to get to know philosophical pragmatism from one of its founders. Highly recommended.
