John Dewey's best-known and still-popular classic, "Democracy and Educa-tion, "is presented here as a new edition in Volume 9 of the Middle Works. Sidney Hook, who wrote the introduction to this volume, describes "Democracy and Education: ""It illuminates directly or indirectly all the basic issues that are cen-tral today to the concerns of intelligent educators. . . . It throws light on sev-eral obscure corners in Dewey's general philosophy in a vigorous, simple prose style often absent in his more technical writings. And it is the only work in any field originally published as a textbook that has not merely acquired the status of a classic, but has become the one book that no student concerned with the phi-losophy of education today should leave unread." Dewey said in 1930that "De-mocracy and Education, ""was for many years the one [book] in which my philos-ophy . . . was most fully expounded."Biografía del autor:
