Show Summary Details


This concluding chapter discusses how Deweyan growth, after Emersonian perfectionism, can point us to a form of education sufficient to rebuild a route from the private to the public. Dewey can guide us to another possibility of social or political education, one that permeates and integrates diverse areas of education. It is the aesthetic turn in Dewey's pragmatism that makes this possible.

Keywords: Deweyan growth; Emersonian perfectionism; education; political education; pragmatism
