In this text, readers are taken on a journey into the mind of John Dewey. By analyzing Dewey's attempts to revise the introduction to one of his most important books, "Experience and Nature", Philip W. Jackson explores Dewey's efforts (both intellectually and emotionally) to explain the relationship between philosophy and human affairs. This story of Dewey's life-long struggle with a complex philosophical question (one that continues to challenge philosophers) is also the story of Jackson's own struggle to understand Dewey's quest. Written for anyone interested in philosophy or the writings of Dewey, this book should be useful for understanding the philosophic method and the philosopher's task of inquiry.
