[Review of the book Reading Dewey: Interpretations for a Postmodern Generation, by edickman]

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Introduction: Anthologies of expository and critical essays on the philosophy of John Dewey are appearing with ever more frequency, testifying to the resilience of pragmatism and of Dewey's own peculiar contributions to this tradition. Presumably for this reason the editor, Larry Hickman, felt it necessary to distinguish this collection from other recent examples by promising essays geared specifically to the needs and interests of a 'postmodern generation'. Hickman writes: The twelve original interpretive essays in this volume locate Dewey's major works within their historical context and present a timely reevaluation of each of the major areas of his broad philosophical reach' [ix].
