0 Reviews
Eleven essays, all but one appearing here for the first time, offer a spectrum of recent critical perspectives on issues central to the philosophy of John Dewey and to what is now known as Deweyan pragmatism. The contributors focus on classically Deweyan concerns such as the nature of experience, selfhood, ethics, education, aesthetics, and democracy, as well as on the relation of those concerns to recent debates concerning feminism, epistemological foundationalism, and the nature of the pragmatist legacy.

[Contributors include Douglas R. Anderson, Raymond Boisvert, James Campbell, Vincent M. Colapietro, Daniel W. Conway, Steven Fesmire, Eugenie Gatens-Robinson, Casey Haskins, Victor Kestenbaum, Richard Shusterman, and J. E. Tiles.]
