John Dewey

Vocational training is the training of animals or slaves. It fits them to become cogs in the industrial machine. Free men need liberal education to prepare them to make a good use of their freedom.More John Dewey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When we consider the close connection between science and industrial development on the one hand, and between literary and aesthetic cultivation and an aristocratic social organization on the other, we get light on the opposition between technical scientific studies and refining literary studies. We have before us the need of overcoming this separation in education if society is to be truly democratic.More John Dewey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Human nature exists and operates in an environment. And it is not 'in' that environment as coins are in a box, but as a plant is in the sunlight and soil.More John Dewey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Man is merely a frequent effect, a monstrosity is a rare one, but both are equally natural, equally inevitable, equally part of the universal and general order. And what is strange about that? All creatures are involved in the life of all others, consequently every species... all nature is in a perpetual state of flux. Every animal is more or less a human being, every mineral more or less a plant, every plant more or less an animal... There is nothing clearly defined in nature.More John Dewey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Traveling is a constant arriving, while arrival that precludes further traveling is most easily attained by going to sleep or dying.More John Dewey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
