Blurb/Shorttext:
By explicating the implicit role of the imagination in John Dewey's notion of educative experience, this book contributes theoretical insight which has been lacking in the vast amount of philosophy of education literature on Dewey. Beginning with an exegesis of educative experience as he describes it in Experience and Education, this book draws upon some of Dewey's other major works and early essays to show that educative experience necessarily involves a particular kind of inquiry which is essentially both imaginative and objectively transformative. This enriched understanding of educative experience concomitantly implicates both moral processes and pedagogical applications. In exploring a deeper understanding of the nature of educative experience and the implicit presence of the imagination in Dewey's philosophy of education, this book thus aims to serve as a supplement to Education and Experience.
