The school and society
John Dewey was a leading proponent of the American school of thought known as pragmatism , a view that rejected the dualistic epistemology and metaphysics of modern philosophy in favor of a naturalistic approach that viewed knowledge as arising from an active adaptation of the human organism to its environment. On this view, inquiry should not be understood as consisting of a mind passively observing the world and drawing from this ideas that if true correspond to reality, but rather as a process which initiates with a check or obstacle to successful human action, proceeds to active manipulation of the environment to test hypotheses, and issues in a re-adaptation of organism to environment that allows once again for human action to proceed. With this view as his starting point, Dewey developed a broad body of work encompassing virtually all of the main areas of philosophical concern in his day. He also wrote extensively on social issues in such popular publications as the New Republic , thereby gaining a reputation as a leading social commentator of his time. The eldest sibling died in infancy, but the three surviving brothers attended the public school and the University of Vermont in Burlington with John. While at the University of Vermont, Dewey was exposed to evolutionary theory through the teaching of G. Perkins and Lessons in Elementary Physiology, a text by T.
In the lectures included in the initial publication, Dewey proposes a psychological, social, and political framework for progressive education. Notably, this includes collaborative practical experimentation as the central element of school work. He argues that the progressive approach is both an inevitable product of the Industrial Revolution and a natural fit with the psychology of children. A final chapter details some of the experiments done at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools. Articles in the edition extended his argument with reprints of Dewey's work published in the Elementary School Record. Experimentation in education was widespread in the 19th century, and much of late 19th century experimentation involved the introduction of "hands on" activities into the classroom. It has been difficult to escape from the traditions of an exclusively book education.
Till the end of the 19th century the educational world was dominated by the religiously-motivated moral aim, the disciplinary aim, and the informational aim. Dewey discarded all these aims of education. He puts forward his aims of education in the light of the rapid social and economic changes in the world — particularly in America. Dewey does not believe in an ultimate aim of education. He provides no fixed and final goal of education. He always speaks of immediate or proximate aims. To him education is experience which is subject to constant change with the changing pattern of life.
Reflections on the 100th year anniversary of John Dewey’s ‘Democracy and Education’
John Dewey  an influential philosopher, psychologist and educational thinker, published his book on Democracy and Education: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Education in John Dewey [along with Lev Vigotsky and Jean Piaget ] is often considered as the father of constructivism. He believed that learning is a social, communal process requiring students to construct their own understanding based on personal experience. Dewey emphasised the importance of inquiry as an instructional approach and has become associated with the discovery of learning and child-centred, progressive teaching approaches. While he certainly believed education needs to connect learning to the real world experience of learners and be child-centred, he also emphasised the importance of a rigorous curriculum that developed powerful methodologies and knowledge. Dewey was uncomfortable with some of the more extreme progressive pedagogical approaches that became associated with his name. Dewey believed developing intellectual powers is a necessary but not a sufficient goal of education.

John Dewey. Chicago: University of Chicago Press : We are apt to look at the school from an individualistic standpoint, as something between teacher and pupil, or between teacher and parent. That which interests us most is naturally the progress made by the individual child of our acquaintance, his normal physical development, his advance in ability to read, write, and figure, his growth in the knowledge of geography and history, improvement in manners, habits of promptness, order, and industry -- it is from such standards as these that we judge the work of the school. And rightly so. Yet the range of the outlook needs to be enlarged.

John Dewey (1859—1952)
Хейл в шоке отпрянул, поняв, что она не шутит: Сьюзан Флетчер никогда еще до него не дотрагивалась, даже руки не коснулась. Правда, это было не то прикосновение, какое он рисовал в воображении, представляя себе их первый физический контакт, но все же… Хейл долго с изумлением смотрел на нее, затем медленно повернулся и направился к своему терминалу. Одно ему было абсолютно ясно: распрекрасная Сьюзан Флетчер бьется над чем-то очень важным, и можно поклясться, что это никакая не диагностика.
Если бы я не нашел черный ход, - сказал Хейл, - это сделал бы кто-то. Я спас вас, сделав это заранее. Можешь представить себе последствия, если бы это обнаружилось, когда Попрыгунчик был бы уже внедрен. - Так или иначе, - парировала Сьюзан, - теперь мы имеем параноиков из Фонда электронных границ, уверенных, что черный ход есть во всех наших алгоритмах.
- Вы все время говорите о произвольном наборе букв. Мне кажется, я должен вам сказать… что это не случайный набор букв. Все на подиуме воскликнули: - Что.
Его взял немец. Дэвид почувствовал, как пол уходит у него из-под ног. - Немец.
В этом их слабость - вы можете путем скрещивания отправить их в небытие, если, конечно, знаете, что делаете. Увы, у этой программы такого тщеславия нет, у нее нет инстинкта продолжения рода. Она бесхитростна и целеустремленна, и когда достигнет своей цели, то скорее всего совершит цифровое самоубийство. - Джабба театральным жестом указал на громадный экран. - Дамы и господа, - он опять тяжело вздохнул, - перед вами компьютерный агрессор-камикадзе… червь. - Червь? - с недоумением переспросил Бринкерхофф.
А ну с дороги, пидор! - Некое существо с прической, больше всего напоминающей подушечку для иголок, прошествовало мимо, толкнув Беккера в бок.
