About the Book

Typescripts, essays, and an authoritative edition of Knowing and the Known, Dewey’ s collaborative work with Arthur F. Bentley.



In an illuminating Introduction T. Z. Lavine defines the collaboration's three goals— the "construction of a new language for behavioral inquiry," "a critique of formal logicians, in defense of Dewey’ s Logic," and "a critique of logical positivism." In Dewey’ s words: "Largely due to Bentley, I’ ve finally got the nerve inside of me to do what I should have done years ago."



"What Is It to Be a Linguistic Sign or Name?" and "Values, Valuations, and Social Facts,’ both written in 1945, are published here for the first time.
