Overview

Dewey's philosophical anthropology, unlike Egan, Vico, Ernst Cassirer, Claude Lévi-Strauss, and Nietzsche, does not account for the origin of thought of the modern mind in the aesthetic, more precisely the myth, but instead in the original occupations and industries of ancient people, and eventually in the history of science. A criticism of this approach is that it does not account for the origin of cultural institutions, which can be accounted for by the aesthetic. Language and its development, in Dewey's philosophical anthropology, have not a central role but are instead a consequence of the cognitive capacity.

I was pleased with the purchase of this book. I used it for a research paper and it had all the information that I needed for the paper. Although not an abridged version, it lacks more information in terms of the table of contents and the ability to look for topics in an index, which sometimes proves helpful, especially in research endeavors. The book is all Dewey, however, and it is a very good read for people truly interested in educational philosophy. It is a very good deal pricewise.
