Dewey's 1910 essay on teaching reasoning. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

John Dewey(1859 1952) was anAmerican philosopher, psychologistandeducational reformerwhose ideas have been influential in education and social reform. Dewey was an important early developer of the philosophy ofpragmatismand one of the founders offunctional psychology. He was a major representative ofprogressive educationandliberalism.In 1894 Dewey joined the newly foundedUniversity of Chicago(1894 1904) where he developed his belief in an empirically based theory of knowledge, becoming associated with the newly emerging Pragmatic philosophy. His time at the University of Chicago resulted in four essays collectively entitledThought and its Subject-Matter, which was published with collected works from his colleagues at Chicago under the collective titleStudies in Logical Theory(1903). During that time Dewey also initiated theUniversity of Chicago Laboratory Schools, where he was able to actualize the pedagogical beliefs that provided material for his first major work on education, The School and Social Progress(1899).In 1899, Dewey was elected president of theAmerican Psychological Association. From 1904 until his retirement in 1930 he was professor of philosophy at both Columbia Universityand Columbia University'sTeachers College.In 1905 he became president of theAmerican Philosophical Association. He was a longtime member of theAmerican Federation of Teachers. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

I had never heard of John Dewey until I took a philosophy class. When I first received the book, I read through it relatively fast. Much of the material went over my head. However, on the second reading it was as if the pages were illuminated. In this book, Mr. Dewey gives his opinion on how we humans learn. It takes every day simple actions, breakes them up into their smallest unit and discusses why we did it that way.
What have I gained from this book? Everytime I do something, I attempt to break it down into its simples being, and determining how this breakdown fosters greater intelligence within myself.
As a text book or a book one wants to learn something from, I give it five stars. For just general reading it will garner 1/2 of a star.

It is very good to see this book appearing in new editions. This is a classic book about thinking. Dewey studies thought from the psychological and philosophical points of view and derives practical ideas for education.

Reading this book, I was surprised to see the applicability of its contents to my main activity field, which is business management. Today's main effort in business research is toward innovation and learning. Thus, thinking skill is probably the most important resource of any organization.

Dewey's view of thinking is surprisingly consistent and as fresh as any of the new management theories. Just to mention one aspect, he warns about the confusion of mental analysis (looking for the general aspects of an object) with physical analysis (dissection into parts), which leads to study living objects as if they were dead. This is the essence of systems thinking, which is so fashionable today!

The ideas Dewey presents about education are very useful for today's business environment. Business leaders, consultants and scholars should look carefully at his advices! His study of work and play is a great lesson of wisdom.

I would strongly recommend this book to anyone seriosly aiming at world class business performance.

4.0 von 5 Sternen How a Deweyan Pragmatist Thinks 6. März 2015
Von Mark Eckenrode - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Written with the educator in mind, How We Think - published just over a century ago by philosopher, psychologist and educator John Dewey - offers philosophical guidance for teachers with an analysis of rational thought, scientific inquiry, the processes of inductive and deductive reasoning, the teacher-student relationship, and other topics. Dewey’s form of pragmatic philosophy guides this work; you’ll have to read elsewhere for a discussion of these presuppositions. But you do not have to agree with Dewey’s philosophy to profit from this work.

Dewey analyzes the various forms of thought, from sloppy, unreflective daydreaming to philosophically minded, critical thinking. He argues that the natural resources of the student should be taken account of, and school conditions must be adjusted to them. What school conditions should foster is the “scientific attitude of mind,” which is near to the “native and unspoiled attitude of childhood, marked by ardent curiosity, fertile imagination, and love of experimental inquiry.”

Critical, scientific thought, Dewey writes, involves a symbiotic relationship between observation and reasoning. The inductive and deductive processes are intertwined and rooted in experience. The nature of scientific meaning or conceptions is analyzed. Neither concrete nor abstract thought is superior: each serves the ends of the other - practical ends are blind without theory, and theorizing is empty without practical ends to serve. Scientific thinking attempts to rise above empirical thought by controlling our observations and seeking to master our environment, allowing the future to come under our grasp. Empirical thought is confined to what is; scientific thought attempts to extend beyond the bounds of sense and ask ‘what if?’ “The prime necessity for scientific thought,” writes Dewey, “is that the thinker be freed from the tyranny of sense stimuli and habit, and this emancipation is also the necessary condition of progress.”

Dewey views on logic and scientific induction are insightful. Being logical, in a special sense as viewed through Dewey’s pragmatism, denotes “the systematic care, negative and positive, taken to safeguard reflection so that it may yield the best results under the given conditions.” Use determines meaning here, as in the Pragmatist epistemology. The inductive and deductive processes exhibit a unity of contrasting processes. ”The inductive movement,” Dewey writes, “is toward of a binding principle; the deductive toward its testing - confirming, refuting, modifying it on the basis of its capacity to interpret isolated details into a unified experience. So far as we conduct each of these processes in the light of the other, we get valid discovery or verified critical thinking.”

Throughout this work Dewey perceives a unity of (what are perceived to be) opposites. Instead of occupying different realms, activities like theoretic and practical thinking, art and science, logic and psychology, and others each provide fuel for or grow out of the other. “The psychological and the logical,” Dewey writes, “instead of being opposed to each other (or even independent of each other), are connected as the earlier and the later stages in one continuous process of normal growth.”

The student's activities should be geared around fostering the scientific spirit. The information given to the student should be connected with the student's own observations and experience. Thought should be trained to base general principles on observation and use; the function and use of general principles determines their form. “Application,” Dewey writes, “is as much an intrinsic part of genuine reflective inquiry as is alert observation or reasoning itself. Truly general principles tend to apply themselves.” Work and play should fuel each other, forming a symbiotic relationship.

This is another great classic available for free on the web for e-readers (this review pertains to the free Kindle ebook version). Students of philosophy, psychology and educators have much to profit from this work.
3.0 von 5 Sternen I think it is good book. Not so much new ideas 22. April 2017
Von Jaroslav Charouz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I think it is good book. Not so much new ideas, sometimes too much words not familiar to me. Still the voice of the author is peculiar and I like it. My interest to read this book was triggered by reading article of this author Free Thought and Official Propaganda, which is good to read as it reminds many important things relevant our todays life. Unfortunately this book (How We Think) is too wordy and not so much original thinking.

1.0 von 5 Sternen This is a Bootleg Edition 13. Januar 2010
Von Anon. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is not the same edition as the one that can be viewed on this page. There is a disclaimer in the front of the book that states that the so-called publisher "recreated this book from the original using Optical Character Recognition software..." Their software was defective. The results are unreadable gibberish. Information from the library they stole it from is integrated into the main body of text on the last page.

I am returning this to Amazon and looking for a legitimate copy of How We Think.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A clear and persuasive account of a centrally important topic 21. Mai 2014
Von Maolmuceirghe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
In this short book Dewey provides a systematic and detailed account of how we do (or should) reach rational conclusions. He writes clearly, and includes many non-technical examples that clarify important points. He includes remarks on education that confirm that his high reputation as an educational leader is well founded. Parallel reading of this book would be an excellent supplement to undergraduate courses of many sorts.

How we think. What a simple direct tittle. It delivers on its directness. It is an easy informative read. It crams information in each page, all of which is valuable. I read this book in a few hours it was so good. It was well worth the read.
