Transforming Experience: John Dewey's Cultural Instrumentalism (The Vanderbilt Library of American Philosophy)

Eldridge, Michael

In Transforming Experience, Michael Eldridge defines what is central to Dewey's philosophy as "cultural instrumentalism," a version of pragmatism that understands thinking to be a tool for dealing with life's problems. While acknowledging and building upon the work of previous Dewey scholars, Eldridge distinguishes his own contributions by systematically concentrating on Dewey's core purpose of promoting intelligent action.
