Overview

The great 20th century philosopher delivered these lectures in China, which are available now to the public for the first time. The lectures show Dewey at the height of his powers, discussing and criticizing various schools of philosophy—including his own experimental position. For the first time Dewey’s thinking crystallized into systematic form, thus the lectures are important not only philosophically but historically. In A Survey of Greek Philosophy Dewey gives a brief but comprehensive account of Greek philosophy from prehistory through Aristotle. Dewey’s original English notes were lost, but the material in this book has been edited and translated from Chinese newspapers of the 1920s by Professor Robert W. Clopton and Dr. Tsuin-Chen Ou. Samuel Meyer has provided a lucid and thorough introduction. Not to be missed by anyone interested in the development of Dewey’s thought and of 20th century philosophy. “. . . the most complete presentation of Dewey’s theory of the development of philosophy, in prose simpler and clearer than he himself ever provided . . . Types of Thinking deserves a place in every subject collection.”—Library Journal
