Pragmatism Today: Perspectives on Cognition, Education and Society
"…we are doubtless far from realizing the potential capacity of education as a constructive agency of improving society", John Dewey wrote in Democracy and Education (1916).
Celebrating the centennial of Dewey’s classic, we hereby invite scholars to meet and debate the status of pragmatism today and how pragmatism has influenced and still influences educational theory and practice. Overall issues are how pragmatic approaches to education have contributed to the improvement of society and whether pragmatic approaches to cognition and society have contributed to the improvement of education.
