Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Dewey (1859-1952) is probably best known to the public in general for his philosophy of education. This collection of his writings, covering the entire course of his intellectual development over time, will therefore provide a necessary corrective to this limited view by showing the depth and breadth of his philosophic interests. In the course of his long life, Dewey wrote and published on myriad topics: certainly, and perhaps most importantly to him, on public education, but also--and extensively--on technical philosophy, including metaphysics, epistemology, logic, aesthetics, religion, science, ethics, and social philosophy. And though neglected by academic philosophers for a time, Dewey's pragmatic orientation has recently proved influential in the thought of Quine, Putnam, and Rorty, among others. This two-volume collection of essays and book chapters, culled from an earlier 37-volume critical edition of his works, provides for the first time a publication of his writings that is both manageable and comprehensive. For academic and larger public libraries.--Leon H. Brody, U.S. Office of Personnel Mgt. Lib., Washingon, DC
