"It makes the study of ethics appear prac-tical, vital, pertinent to affairs, capable of contributing to the settlement of prob-lems that contemporary mankind is re-ally in doubt about. This is not only a great virtue but also a curiously rare one, in this class of books."--Arthur O. Lovejoy, "American Journal of Theology"Vom Verlag:
Thisfifth volume of the Middle Works contains "Ethics "by John Dewey and his former colleague at the University of Michigan, James H. Tufts, which ap-peared as one of the last in the Holt American Science series of textbooks. Within some six months after publica-tion, "Ethics "was adopted as a textbook by thirty colleges. The book continued to be extremely popular and widely used, and was reprinted twenty-five times before both authors completely revised their respective parts for the new 1932edition.
Up to the time "Ethics "was published, Dewey's approach to ethics was known primarily from two short publications that were developed for use by his classes at the University of Michigan: "Outlines of a Critical Theory of Ethics "(1891)and "The Study of Ethics: A Syl-labus "(1894). Charles Stevenson notes in his Introduction to the present edition that "Ethics "afforded Dewey an opportu-nity to preserve and enrich the content of those earlier works and at the same time to expound his position in a more systematic manner.
