John Dewey's classic work Democracy and Education is presented here in an authoritative edition with an introduction by Sidney Hook. Although Dewey's publishing agreement called for him to write a "Textbook on the Philosophy of Education," he said not long after it appeared that "Democracy and Education, in spite of its title, is the closest attempt I have made to sum up my entire philosophical position."

John Dewey was born in 1859 in Burlington, Vermont. He founded the Laboratory School at the University of Chicago in 1896 to apply his original theories of learning based on pragmatism and "directed living." This combination of learning with concrete activities and practical experience helped earn him the title, "father of progressive education." After leaving Chicago he went to Columbia University as a professor of philosophy from 1904 to 1930, bringing his educational philosophy to the Teachers College there. Dewey was known and consulted internationally for his opinions on a wide variety of social, educational and political issues. His many books on these topics began with Psychology (1887), and include The School and Society (1899), Experience and Nature (1925), and Freedom and Culture (1939).Dewey died of pneumonia in 1952.
