In A Common Faith, eminent American philosopher John Dewey calls for the “emancipation of the true religious quality” from the heritage of dogmatism and supernaturalism that he believes characterizes historical religions. He describes how the depth of religious experience and the creative role of faith in the resources of experience to generate meaning and value can be cultivated without making cognitive claims that complete with or contend with scientific ones. What Dewey advocates is “faith in the common” as the ground of meaning. In a new introduction, Dewey scholar Thomas Alexander contextualizes the text for students and scholars by providing an overview of Dewey and his philosophy, key concepts in A Common Faith, and reactions to the text. "[Dewey’s] search for the supremely worthful, stripped of all its traditional bias and wishful thinking, should be widely shared."—Christian Century
