This book demonstrates John Dewey's ongoing significance as an educational critic. After providing a personal and intellectual biography of Dewey, this primer focuses on the relevance of his views of reflective thinking for both educational practice and theorizing about issues concerning curriculum, teaching, knowledge, ethics, moral education, constructivism, and perspectivism. This book also shows the crucial differences between reflective and dogmatic thinking and their implications for schooling, teaching, and learning. The work is a primer designed for courses in educational issues, educational foundations, introduction to education, and philosophy of education.
