John Dewey's Pedagogy of Experience

(p.407) Chapter Twenty-One The Gamble for Excellence
The Drama of Possibility

John J. McDermott

Fordham University Press

This chapter presents an essay on classical American philosopher John Dewey's pedagogy of experience. It cites Elizabeth Flower's 1977 research article on Dewey where she explored the social and educational matrix that is riven throughout all of the philosopher's thought. Dewey's philosophy of education states that education is to be conceived as the process of forming fundamental dispositions, intellectual and emotional, toward nature and fellow men, and that philosophy may even be defined as the general theory of education.

Keywords:   John Dewey, pedagogy of experience, education, philosophy, essay
