The Quest for Certainty addresses the relationship between philosophy’s theories of knowledge and scientific discoveries in the natural world. Dewey argues that philosophy has failed in its modern sense to properly engage and rationalise the division between scientific advancement and its own theories of knowledge. The first chapter, ‘Escape from Peril’, argues that the uncertainty of life in primitive times necessitated looking for certainty in the realm of the true Being or through manipulation by magic. Knowledge of the former became viewed as superior, while the practice of the latter was viewed as lesser.
