About the Book

During the three years embraced by Volume 7, Dewey published twenty articlesand reviews, one of the articles of monograph-length, “The Psychology of Social Behavior,” one small book, Interest and Effort in Education, and sev­enty encyclopedia articles.

A salient and arresting feature of the essays is the continuing polemic be­tween Dewey and some of his critics. Ralph Ross, whose perceptive Introduc­tion to the volume provides a broad per­spective of the various philosophicalcontroversies in which Dewey was en­gaged, comments that “when Dewey was pitting himself against important adversaries, his talents as a critic were fully evident.”


Ralph Ross is Hartley Burr Alexan­der Professor of Humanities and Profes­sor of Philosophy, Scripps College, and Professor of Philosophy on the Graduate Faculty of the Claremont Colleges.

Jo Ann Boydston, General Editor of the Middle Works, is Director of the Center for Dewey Studies at Southern Illinois Univer­sity at Carbondale.
