Abstract:

Democracy and Education Reconsidered reflects on the continued importance of what is arguably the most internationally influential book on education written in the twentieth century. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of publication, this volume highlights the enduring relevance of John Dewey's seminal Democracy and Education while also examining the need to reconstruct and re-contextualize Dewey's educational philosophy for our time. The authors propose ways of revising Dewey's thought in light of the challenges facing contemporary education and society, and address other themes not touched upon heavily in Dewey's work, such as racism, feminism, post-industrial capitalism, and liquid modernity. Drawing on theories of interactive constructivism, Garrison, Neubert, and Reich intergrate Dewey's philosophy with more recent trends in scholarship, including pragmatism, post-structuralism, constructivism, and the works of other key philosophers and scholars. -- from back cover.
