About the Book

With the exception of The Quest for Cer­tainty (Volume 4) this fifth volume brings together Dewey’s writings for the 1929–1930 period.

During this time Dewey published 4 books and 50 articles on philosophical, educational, political, and social issues. His philosophical essays include “What Humanism Means to Me” and “What I Believe,” both of which express Dewey’s faith in man’s potentialities and intel­ligence, and a lively Journal of Philoso­phy exchange with Ernest Nagel, Wil­liam Ernest Hocking, C. I. Lewis, and F. J. E. Woodbridge. Educational writings include The Sources of a Science of Education. The contents of this volume re­flect Dewey’s increasing involvement in social and political problems.


Paul Kurtz, Professor of Philosophy at the State University of New York at Buf­falo, is the editor of Free Inquiry.

Jo Ann Boydston is the Director of the Center for Dewey Studies.

Kathleen E. Poulos, textual editor of this volume, is a staff member at the Dewey Center.
