Understanding John Dewey: Nature and Cooperative Intelligence (International Studies in Philosophy).

Dewey is the most influential of American social thinkers, and his stock is now rising once more among professional philosophers. Yet there has heretofore been no adequate, readable survey of the full range of Dewey's thought.After an introduction situating Dewey in the context of American social and intellectual history, Professor Campbell devotes Part I to Dewey's general philosophical perspective as it considers humans and their natural home. Three aspects of human nature are most prominent in Dewey's thinking: humans as evolutionary emergents, as essentially social beings, and as problem solvers.Part II examines Dewey's social vision, taking his ethical views as the starting point. Underlying all of Dewey's efforts at social reconstruction are certain assumptions about cooperative enquiry as a social method, assumptions which Campbell explains and clarifies before evaluating various criticisms of Dewey's ideas. The final chapter discusses Dewey's views on religion.

This is a great introduction to an important and often underrated thinker. This introduction is clear and well written so that it can serve as a great introduction to a layperson and not just a philosophy student.

Unfortunately Dewey is one of those figures whose work seems to be better known through reputation and hearsay rather than first hand knowledge. This book is a great way to acquire a real understanding of his thinking because the book extensively quotes Dewey directly while providing useful context.

Dewey has a very practical approach to philosophy and his work is uniquely applicable to daily life so I would recommend this book to anyone. The following is a quote from Dewey that illustrates this point nicely:

"Philosophy recovers itself when it ceases to be a device for dealing with the problems of philosophers and becomes a method, cultivated by philosophers, for dealing with the problems of men."

I'm note sure what the previous reviewer is talking about but his comments have nothing to do with this book and it is obvious he has not read the book.
