Summary Why would a major figure in philosophy devote so much of his energy to education, a subject passed over lightly by most philsophers? In Dewey's case, it is clear that the concern about education derived in large part from his wider intellectual interests. The purpose of this study is to analyze the relation of Dewey's general philosophy to his ideas about education. Personal events as well as intellectual interests pushed him to confront problems in education. - pages 3.
