Essays on Education and Politics 1915
Volume 8 comprises all Dewey's published writings for the year 1915?and only for 1915, a year of typically elevated productivity, which saw publication of fifteen articles and miscellaneous pieces and three books, two of which are reprinted here: German Philosophy and Politics and Schools of Tomorrow.
Professor Hook says that the publications in this volume reveal John Dewey at the height of his philosophical powers. Even though his greatest works were still to come?Democracy and Education, Experience and Nature, The Quest for Certainty, and Logic: The Theory of Inquiry??the themes elaborated therein were already sounded and developed with incisive brevity in the articles and books of this banner year.”
