When "reality" is sought for at large, it is without intellectual import; at most the term carries the connotation of an agreeableemotional state.More John Dewey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Our historic imagination is at best slightly developed. We generalise and idealise the past egregiously. We set up little toys to stand as symbols for centuries and the complicated lives of countless individuals.More John Dewey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
An empirical philosophy is in any case a kind of intellectual disrobing. We cannot permanently divest ourselves of the intellectual habits we take on and wear when we assimilate the culture of our own time and place. But intelligent furthering of culture demands that we take some of them off, that we inspect them critically to see what they are made of and what wearing them does to us. We cannot achieve recovery of primitive naïveté. But there is attainable a cultivated naïveté of eye, ear and thought.More John Dewey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The central problem of an education based upon experience is to select the kind of present experience that live fruitfully and creatively in subsequent experiences.More John Dewey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
