John dewey's sensible mysticism

Show Summary Details


This chapter describes John Dewey's sensible mysticism. It brings attention to what for Dewey was commonplace in his own work. He is often portrayed as a quiet, dry, and functional New Englander whose aims are practical in a narrow sense; but his work discloses another dimension of Dewey: a wilder, richer, quasi-Emersonian figure.

Keywords: John Dewey; sensible mysticism; Emerson; New England
