John Dewey, From Philosophy of Pragmatism to Progressive Education
Keywords:Democracy, Education, Experience, Laboratory School, Philosophy of Education, Pragmatism, Progressive Education, Relation between Individual and Society, School and Society.
AbstractThe reason for this publication has been our interest in educational issues on the one hand, and, on the other, in the philosophy of education of J. Dewey. This resulted in further approaching the philosophy of Pragmatism and considering its influence on J. Dewey’s philosophy of education. At the same time, we have sought the influences on his work from Aristotelian thought. In this direction, we show that the American philosopher considered the philosophy of pragmatism as applicable to a democratic education, which is also considered to be moral education.
