About the Book

This volume republishes sixty-two of Dewey’s writings from the years 1942 to 1948; four other items are published here for the first time.

A focal point of this volume is Dewey’s introduction to his collective volume Problems of Men. Exchanges in the Journal of Philosophy with Donald C. Mackay, Philip Blair Rice, and with Alexander Meiklejohn in Fortune appear here, along with Dewey’s letters to editors of various publications and his forewords to colleagues’ books. Because 1942 was the centenary of the birth of William James, four articles about James are also included in this volume.


Lewis S. Feuer is University Professor Emeritus at the University of Virginia. He is author of Einstein and the Generations of Science.

Jo Ann Boydston is Distinguished Professor at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and Director of the Center for Dewey Studies.
