The School and Society (Hardcover): John Dewey The School and Society (Hardcover)
John Dewey
R170 R138 Discovery Miles 1 380 Save R32 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

These two short, influential books, which grew out of Dewey's hands-on experience in administering the laboratory school at the University of Chicago, represent the earliest authoritative statement of his revolutionary emphasis on education as an experimental, child-centered process. In The School and Society, he declares that we must "make each one of our schools an embryonic community life, active with types of occupations that reflect the life of the larger society and permeated with the spirit of art, history, and science." In The Child and the Curriculum he stresses the importance of the curriculum as a means of determining the environment of the child, and allowing the teacher to guide children in asserting themselves, exercising their capacities, and fulfilling their own nature. 8 black-and-white illustrations.

Experience And Education (Paperback, 2 Revised Edition): John Dewey Experience And Education (Paperback, 2 Revised Edition)
John Dewey
R200 R162 Discovery Miles 1 620 Save R38 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

"Experience and Education" is the best concise statement on education ever published by John Dewey, the man acknowledged to be the pre-eminent educational theorist of the twentieth century. Written more than two decades after "Democracy and Education" (Dewey's most comprehensive statement of his position in educational philosophy), this book demonstrates how Dewey reformulated his ideas as a result of his intervening experience with the progressive schools and in the light of the criticisms his theories had received.

Analyzing both "traditional" and "progressive" education, Dr. Dewey here insists that neither the old nor the new education is adequate and that each is miseducative because neither of them applies the principles of a carefully developed philosophy of experience. Many pages of this volume illustrate Dr. Dewey's ideas for a philosophy of experience and its relation to education. He particularly urges that all teachers and educators looking for a new movement in education should think in terms of the deeped and larger issues of education rather than in terms of some divisive "ism" about education, even such an "ism" as "progressivism." His philosophy, here expressed in its most essential, most readable form, predicates an American educational system that respects all sources of experience, on that offers a true learning situation that is both historical and social, both orderly and dynamic.

On Education (Paperback, Univ of Chicago ed.): John Dewey On Education (Paperback, Univ of Chicago ed.)
John Dewey; Volume editing by Reginald D. Archambault
R825 Discovery Miles 8 250 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In this collection, Reginald D. Archambault has assembled John Dewey's major writings on education. He has also included basic statements of Dewey's philosophic position that are relevant to understanding his educational views. These selections are useful not only for understanding Dewey's pedagogical principles, but for illustrating the important relation between his educational theory and the principles of his general philosophy.Professor Archambault has divided the selections into seven general categories: Philosophy and Education, Ethics and Education, Aesthetics and Education, Science and Education, Psychology and Education, Society and Education, and Principles of Pedagogy. In his Introduction, the editor discusses these categories, influences on Dewey's writing, and important concepts in the philosopher's theory of education. He emphasizes that in order to understand Dewey's educational writings, it is essential to understand his conception of science. The volume contains twenty-nine selections, all of which are complete essays or chapters from Dewey's major works. This comprehensive volume should prove valuable to philosophers, educational theorists, teachers, and students who want a wide selection of Dewey's educational thought. As Professor Archambault writes, "These principles, and the educational prescriptions and controversies that spring from them, are as vital today as they were when they exploded on the educational horizon at the turn of the century. We should be able, with distance and fresh perspective, to 'reconstruct' them, to use a favorite term of Dewey's, so that their value for us can be revitalized."

Child and the Curriculum (Paperback, Revised edition): John Dewey Child and the Curriculum (Paperback, Revised edition)
John Dewey; Introduction by Philip W. Jackson
R294 Discovery Miles 2 940 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

"The School and Society" and "The Child and the Curriculum" succinctly set forth John Dewey's revolutionary philosophy of education as an experimental, child-centered process. For years, educators have turned to this classic volume for insight and practical guidance. Yet Dewey's renown and his enduring readership raise a curious question: why haven't more of this important thinker's ideas been put into practice?Philip W. Jackson addresses this question in a new and substantial introduction in which he looks back on the history of the University of Chicago Lab Schools and discusses their transformation. This centennial edition also restores to the volume a "lost" chapter dropped by Dewey in 1915. In this essay, written three years after the inception of the Lab Schools, Dewey himself critiques the efforts to realize his theories in that institution. This edition brings Dewey's educational theory into sharper focus, framing his two classic works, "The School and Society" and "The Child and the Curriculum," by frank assessments, past and present, of the practical application of those remarkable ideas.

Moral Principles in Education and My Pedagogic Creed - With a Critical Introduction by Patricia H. Hinchey (Paperback): John... Moral Principles in Education and My Pedagogic Creed - With a Critical Introduction by Patricia H. Hinchey (Paperback)
John Dewey; Edited by Patricia H. Hinchley
R317 Discovery Miles 3 170 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Contemporary political and socioeconomic conditions largely characterized by corruption and inequity have added new urgency to recurring calls for reorienting American public schools to their historic purpose: educating a citizenry both equipped and motivated to serve as the ultimate guardians of democracy. While the Founding Fathers, including Jefferson, as well as the founders of public schools, including Horace Mann, explicitly stated that rationale, perhaps no one has done more than John Dewey to detail the inextricable relationship between education and democratic society. In Moral Principles in Education and My Pedagogic Creed, Dewey reminds readers of public schools' original purpose, and he identifies specific educational principles and practices that either promote or undermine their essential democratic goals. Sadly, readers will recognize that many of the counterproductive practices he describes remain pervasive. Dewey argues that if schools are to nurture ethical and effective citizens, then they must become genuine democratic communities where students acquire the habits of mind and behavior that will lead them as adults to steer the country in a more ethical and equitable direction. "There cannot be two sets of ethical principles," he says, "one for life in the school, and the other for life outside of the school." In these works and through such caveats, Dewey offers readers both the motivation to engage in the struggle for a new emphasis on educating for democratic citizenship and the guidance necessary to translate his theory into effective practice.

A morality "based on the study of human nature instead of upon disregard for it" is the focus of this influential work by one of America's greatest educators and philosophers. Dewey maintains that the key to social psychology lies in an understanding of the many varieties of habit; individual mental activity, on the other hand, is guided by the subordinate factors of impulse and intelligence. His investigation therefore focuses on three main areas of conduct: habit, impulse, and intelligence. Each factor receives an incisive treatment, brimming with ideas, insights, and considered reflections sure to be appreciated by educators, psychologists, philosophers, and anyone interested in the role of the individual in society. Unabridged republication of the classic 1922 edition.
