John Dewey and the Lessons of Art

Yale University Press, 2000 - 204 Seiten
0 Rezensionen
What do the arts have to teach us about how to live our lives? How can teachers use art's 'lessons' to improve their teaching? This provocative book examines John Dewey's thinking about the arts and explores the practical implications of that thinking for educators. Philip W. Jackson draws on 'Art as experience', the philosopher's only book on the subject, and less well-known observations scattered throughout Dewey's writings to consider the nature and power of art and its relation to education. For those unacquainted with Dewey's thought as well as for Dewey specialists, this book provides rich insights into how the arts might inform educational practice.
