Editorial Reviews

Review

"Garrison, Neubert and Reich have given their readers a well organized and highly accessible volume that presents John Dewey's key contributions to philosophy and education in a clear and comprehensive fashion. Educators and others will be especially grateful for their extensive discussion of how Dewey's ideas relate to the insights of six of the central figures of post-structuralist thought." - Larry A. Hickman, director of the Center for Dewey Studies and professor of philosophy at Southern Illinois University Carbondale

"Most of the educational literature on Dewey suffers either from a neglect of the origins of Dewey's educational theory in his seminal philosophical work in the late 19th and early 20th century on psychology, nature, culture, metaphysics and epistemology or from a presentist prejudice that neglects the necessity of fresh hermeneutical readings of Dewey in tension with contemporary theorists and public problems. In John Dewey's Philosophy of Education: An Introduction and Recontextualization for Our Times, Garrison, Neubert and Reich offer correctives to both problems by introducing the development of Dewey's educational theory through an expert and insightful analysis of his early philosophical writings and bringing Dewey's views into a contemporary gaze by a reconstructive discussion of their transaction with modern philosophers such as Bauman, Foucault, Bourdieu, Derrida, Levinas and Rorty. The result is a work of serious philosophical and educational scholarship that will interest and benefit both students and scholars of philosophy and education." - James M. Giarelli, professor, Rutgers University Graduate School of Education

"John Dewey's Philosophy of Education is meticulously researched and skillfully recontextualized. I highly recommend the book." - Douglas J. Simpson, Texas Tech University

"The authors do a great service in modernizing Dewey and especially in showing his relevance to thinking broadly beyond the confines of his own culture . . . Recommended" - Choice
