The global community, religion, and education: the modernity of Dewey’s social philosophy


Tröhler, Daniel (2000). The global community, religion, and education: the modernity of Dewey’s social philosophy. Studies in Philosophy & Education, 19(1-2):159-186.

Abstract

As a starting point this paper takes Dewey's nowadays often stressed modernity and examines his social philosophy against the background of the current debates on republicanism and communitarianism. Particularly, the anaysis of Dewey'sThe Public and its Problem (1927) concludes that the attention being paid to Dewey is problematic as specific religious assumptions — explicitly developed inA Common Faith (1934) -lie in the background of his social philosophy, and are hardly being recognized. However, as it shall be shown, without considering the religious basis, neither Dewey's social philosophy nor his educational theory can be properly understood
