A concise, eminently readable introduction to the thought of America's most prominent philosopher.

Book News
The cover photo of Dewey's 90th birthday celebration in 1949 (three years before his death) pictures a man called "the second Confucius" by the Chinese as their first invited Western scholar in the early 1920s. Boisvert (philosophy, Siena College; Loudonville, NY) goes well beyond Dewey's "learning by doing" empirical credo for which is he best-known, to establish his status as a major American philosopher contributing to ethics, politics, the philosophy of art, education, religion, and theory of knowledge. Reinforcing Dewey's contemporary relevance is information on his cyberspace presence. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
