Book: Dewey: A Beginner's Guide

John Dewey: A Beginner's Guide (Oxford: Oneworld Press, 2008)

I've recently finished a book project on John Dewey for Oneworld Press. 
NOTE TO TEACHERS: Because I know that many teachers will not need the whole book for their class, at least the first time they teach, I've segmented the book into separate PDFs, one for each chapter (with notes for that chapter). If you would like to try out a chapter or two in one of your classes, please email me and I will send you a PDF. This is FREE and with the publisher's consent.
This is a critical introduction to the major areas of his philosophical thought: psychology, epistemology, ethics, politics, education, aesthetics, and philosophy of religion.
Here are some kind words:
"Intelligent, informed, judicious, and praise-worthy. Clearly of help to those coming to Dewey for the first time." --John J. McDermott - University Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Texas A&M University, and editor of The Philosophy of John Dewey
"Incisive and clear-headed. He has laid a firm foundation for discovering Dewey's importance in coming to grips with the ecological and global problems of the 21st century." --Thomas M. Alexander, Professor of Philosophy at Southern Illinois University
"Erudite, organized, and articulate. The key terms and concepts of Dewey's major publications are identified, explained, and related to one another in ways that render his work highly accessible. A lucid and jargon-free introduction." --Larry Hickman, Director of the Center for Dewey Studies
"Guides the beginner through the major areas of Dewey's rich body of thought with clarity and insight." --Richard Shusterman, Dorothy F. Schmidt Eminent Scholar in the Humanities, Florida Atlantic University and author of Practicing Philosophy: Pragmatism and the Philosophical Life
