With the exception of "Experience and Nature, "(Volume 1 of the Later Works), this volume contains all of Dewey s writings for 1925 and 1926, as well as his 1927 book, "The Public and Its Problems. A Modern Language Association s Committee on Scholarly Editions "textual edition.The first essay in this volume, The Development of American Pragmatism, is perhaps Dewey s best-known article of these years, emphasizing the uniquely American origins of his own philosophical innovations. Other essays focus on Dewey s continuing investigation of the nature of intelligent conduct, as, for example, his debate with David Wight Prall on the underpinnings of value, his study of sense-perception, and his support for outlawing of war. Also appearing here are Dewey s final articles on the culture of the developing world, written for the "New"" Republic "after his travels to China, Turkey, and Mexico."
