Throughout the United States and the world at large, the name of John Dewey has become synonymous with the Progressive education movement. Dewey has been generally recognized as the most renowned and influential American philosopher of education. During his lifetime the United States developed from a simple frontier-agricultural society to a complex urban-industrial nation, and Dewey developed his educational ideas largely in response to this rapid and wrenching period of cultural change.
John Dewey is primarily known for two things: being one of the big names in pragmatism , and for his highly influential claims about education , specifically pointing out the active nature of learning such that simply sitting students down and telling them things is not very effective. Now, Dewey was born in , and wrote about pragmatism and truth near the turn of the century, about the same time as William James, and wrote his important book about education in you might want to listen to some of the Librivox version of that. By , we're dealing with mature Dewey trying to get out his overall worldview, his take on the enterprise of philosophy.

Experience and Nature
John Dewey believed that a democratic society of informed and engaged inquirers was the best means of promoting human interests. After receiving a doctorate in philosophy from Johns Hopkins University in , he began teaching philosophy and psychology at the University of Michigan. There his interests gradually shifted from the philosophy of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel to the new experimental psychology being advanced in the United States by G. Stanley Hall and the pragmatist philosopher and psychologist William James. Further study of child psychology prompted Dewey to develop a philosophy of education that would meet the needs of a changing democratic society. In Dewey left Chicago for Columbia University in New York City, where he spent the majority of his career and wrote his most famous philosophical work, Experience and Nature
He was one of the most prominent American scholars in the first half of the twentieth century. The overriding theme of Dewey's works was his profound belief in democracy , be it in politics, education, or communication and journalism. He asserted that complete democracy was to be obtained not just by extending voting rights but also by ensuring that there exists a fully formed public opinion , accomplished by communication among citizens, experts and politicians, with the latter being accountable for the policies they adopt. Dewey was one of the primary figures associated with the philosophy of pragmatism and is considered one of the fathers of functional psychology. His paper "The Reflex Arc Concept in Psychology," published in , is regarded as the first major work in the Chicago functionalist school. Dewey was also a major educational reformer for the 20th century. John Dewey was born in Burlington, Vermont to a family of modest means.

In addition, Dewey developed extensive and often systematic views in ethics, epistemology, logic, metaphysics, aesthetics, and philosophy of religion. Because Dewey typically took a genealogical approach that couched his own view within the larger history of philosophy, one may also find a fully developed metaphilosophy in his work. Set within the larger picture of Darwinian evolutionary theory, philosophy should be seen as an activity undertaken by interdependent organisms-in-environments. This standpoint, of active adaptation, led Dewey to criticize the tendency of traditional philosophies to abstract and reify concepts derived from living contexts.
Unfortunately, Rorty was not aclose reader of Dewey's aesthetics. Art as experience by Dewey, John, To define the emotional element of the process of perception merely as the pleasure taken in the action of contemplation, independent of what is excited by the matter contemplated, results.
