本书描述学校和社会的关系。在书中,我们想请您思考这样一个问题:除了阅读、写作、算术和其他的学科教学外,学校还干什么呢?这是本书作者请读者和教育工作者思考并回答的一个问题,也是贯穿本书始末的主题。本书通过来自美国社会的一些案例和争论的形式,作者营造出具体的情境,使抽象的理论变得通俗化和具体化。本书为我们思考当前我国学校教育所面临的问题提供了启示。

Originally published in 1899, The School and Society began as a series of lectures given to parents, professionals, and others at the University Elementary School. In this short volume, Dewey discusses the way in which education is fundamentally tied to a thriving democracy. The problem, according to the author, with the old education model was that elementary schools did not encourage exploration and curiosity in their students. In a country that requires the thoughtful pursuit of ideas by the populace in order to arrive at reasonable governance, this repressive form of education encouraged rote following and closed minds. Anyone interested in philosophy, education, and the general betterment of society will find Dewey's thoughts and early childhood learning progressive and intriguing.

约翰·杜威(John Dewey)是实用主义的集大成者。一位评论家说他是“实用主义神圣实用主义神圣家族的家长”(M.怀特)。如果说皮尔士创立了实用主义的方法,威廉·詹姆斯建立了实用主义的真理观,那么,杜威则建造了实用主义的理论大厦。他的著作很多,涉及科学、艺术、宗教伦理、政治、教育、社会学、历史学和经济学诸方面,使实用主义成为美国特有的文化现象。

John Dewey, FAA (October 20, 1859 – June 1, 1952) was an American philosopher, psychologist, leading activist in the Georgist movement, and educational reformer whose ideas have been influential in education and social reform. Dewey is one of the primary figures associated with the philosophy of pragmatism and is considered one of the founders of functional psychology. A well-known public intellectual, he was also a major voice of progressive education and liberalism. Although Dewey is known best for his publications about education, he also wrote about many other topics, including epistemology, metaphysics, aesthetics, art, logic, social theory, and ethics.
