This is an unabridged reproduction of American philosopher Dewey's 1916 influential treatise on the philosophy of progressive education. For the founder of philosophical pragmatism, the purpose of education was intimately connected with the role of the citizen in democracy and he believed it should be structured to encourage the associational and communal aspects of democratic society.
