This volume stresses two points. The original interest of European edu cation in Dewey will be presented in case studies, concerning differen t national contexts and thus different Dewey's. What can be called the renewal of interest will be argued from different sides. It is our in tention to show that today's interest in Dewey is not the remake of th e reception within the different camps of progressive education. This volume will be of interest to philosophers of education, historians o f education, and people engaged in the philosophy, history and the rec eption of Dewey.
