Sidney Hook, one of America's leading social philosophers, was a dedicated student and friend of John Dewey, one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century. In this timeless volume, first published in 1939, Hook discusses the leading philosophical ideas of his mentor to highlight Dewey's central themes, their implications, and the relevance of his vision to the problems of American culture. Included in this intellectual biography are Dewey's thoughts on philosophy and culture; truth; logic and action; body, mind, and behaviour; standards, ends, and means; the good society; education; art; human nature; and democracy.
