What People are Saying About This

Richard J. Bernstein

William Caspary manages to escape from writing another 'academic' treatment of Dewey, and to show how Dewey can be adapted to dealing with contemporary practical problems, especially those involving conflict.
—(Richard J. Bernstein, New School for Social Research, author of John Dewey, editor of Dewey on Experience, Nature, and Freedom)

Robert Westbrook

William Caspary has crafted a fine, persuasive study of John Dewey's ethics and democratic politics. But best of all he has not been timid about applying Dewey's ethics to such hard cases as abortion or about venturing to suggest concretely what a Deweyan politics might look like.
—(Robert Westbrook, University of Rochester)

Larry Hickman

Well written and well organized, William Caspary's Dewey on Democracy presents an easy path for the reader to follow, offering a good understanding of Dewey's work and a broad knowledge of the secondary literature of the field.
—(Larry Hickman, Director, The Center for Dewey Studies, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale)
