Summary

John Dewey's best-known and still-popular classic,Democracy and Educashy;tion,is presented here as a new edition in Volume 9 of the Middle Works. Sidney Hook, who wrote the introduction to this volume, describesDemocracy and Education:''It illuminates directly or indirectly all the basic issues that are censhy;tral today to the concerns of intelligent educators. . . . It throws light on sevshy;eral obscure corners in Dewey's general philosophy in a vigorous, simple prose style often absent in his more technical writings. And it is the only work in any field originally published as a textbook that has not merely acquired the status of a classic, but has become the one book that no student concerned with the phishy;losophy of education today should leave unread.'' Dewey said in 1930thatDeshy;mocracy and Education,''was for many years the one [book] in which my philosshy;ophy . . . was most fully expounded.''
