Fosnot, Pearl Beatrice
MetadataShow full item record
The selection of the problem of tradition and change in John Dewey's social philosophy was prompted by the desire to evaluate his views and test their adequacy for reconstruction in China, where his influence has been pronounced. After a treatment of environmental (American and foreign), academic and personal influences on Dewey's social thought tradition and change are related to the social process--the ends of the process and means of attaining them. This is followed by an application of his theories on tradition and change to institutions--the family, school, church, political and economic institutions, international relations, and democracy.
