John Dewey: Rethinking Our Time
Written in a manner accessible to non-specialists, this book provides an introduction to all areas central to John Dewey s philosophy: aesthetics, social and political philosophy, education, the philosophy of religion, and theory of knowledge. Boisvert situates Dewey as a thinker who could appreciate the advance of science while remaining an empirical naturalist committed to the revelatory powers of lived experience."
