Description - Dewey by James E. Tiles

John Dewey (1859-1952) was an American educationalist and philosopher. His highly original version of pragmatism, his "instrumentalism", held a pre-eminent place in American philosophy during the first half of this century. The author traces the consequences of the dominant characteristic of Dewey's thought, which was his desire to resist thinking of the main aspects of human life in isolation from one another, and to resist the institutionalization of their separation. Tiles relates Dewey's view to those of his fellow pragmatists, James and Peirce, to critical contemporaries such as Russell and Lovejoy, and to earlier philosophers and others who have become prominent since Dewey's death, such as Bernard Williams and Thomas Nagel.
