John Dewey
JOHN DEWEY (/ˈduːi/ ; October 20, 1859 – June 1, 1952) was an American philosopher , psychologist , 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 fathers of functional psychology . A _ Review of General Psychology _ survey, published in 2002, ranked Dewey as the 93rd most cited psychologist of the 20th century. 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 . He was a major educational reformer for the 20th century. The overriding theme of Dewey's works was his profound belief in democracy, be it in politics, education or communication and journalism. As Dewey himself stated in 1888, while still at the University of Michigan, "Democracy and the one, ultimate, ethical ideal of humanity are to my mind synonymous." Known for his advocacy of democracy, Dewey considered two fundamental elements—schools and civil society —to be major topics needing attention and reconstruction to encourage experimental intelligence and plurality

John Frederick Dewey
JOHN FREDERICK DEWEY FRS (born 22 May 1937) is a British structural geologist and a strong proponent of the theory of plate tectonics , building upon the early work undertaken in the 1960s and 1970s. He is widely regarded as an authority on the development and evolution of mountain ranges . Dewey was educated at Bancroft\'s School and Queen Mary and Imperial College at the University of London where he was awarded a BSc and PhD in geology. Following a period as lecturer at the University of Manchester (1960–64), the University of Cambridge (1964–70) and Memorial University of Newfoundland (1971), Dewey was appointed Professor of Geology at the State University of New York at Albany . During this period he produced a series of classic papers centred on the history of the Appalachians in Newfoundland as well as the Scottish and Irish Caledonides . In later years, his research has concentrated upon producing a model to describe the development and orogenic history of the Himalayan mountain range. Dewey returned to the UK in 1982 as Professor of Geology at the University of Durham , a position he held for four years. As with several Durham geologists before him, notably Lawrence Wager , Dewey was appointed Professor of Geology at the University of Oxford (and Fellow of University College ) in 1986, a position he held until his resignation in 2000

20th-century Philosophy
20TH-CENTURY PHILOSOPHY saw the development of a number of new philosophical schools— including logical positivism , analytic philosophy , phenomenology , existentialism , and poststructuralism . In terms of the eras of philosophy, it is usually labelled as _contemporary philosophy _ (succeeding modern philosophy , which runs roughly from the time of Descartes until the twentieth-century). As with other academic disciplines, philosophy increasingly became professionalized in the twentieth century, and a split emerged between philosophers who considered themselves part of either the "analytic" or "continental" traditions. However, there have been disputes regarding both the terminology and the reasons behind the divide, as well as philosophers who see themselves as bridging the divide. In addition, philosophy in the twentieth century became increasingly technical and harder for lay people to read

Pragmatism
PRAGMATISM is a philosophical tradition that began in the United States around 1870. Its origins are often attributed to the philosophers William James , John Dewey , and Charles Sanders Peirce . Peirce later described it in his pragmatic maxim : "Consider the practical effects of the objects of your conception. Then, your conception of those effects is the whole of your conception of the object." Pragmatism considers thought an instrument or tool for prediction, problem solving and action, and rejects the idea that the function of thought is to describe, represent, or mirror reality. Pragmatists contend that most philosophical topics—such as the nature of knowledge, language, concepts, meaning, belief, and science—are all best viewed in terms of their practical uses and successes. The philosophy of pragmatism "emphasizes the practical application of ideas by acting on them to actually test them in human experiences". Pragmatism focuses on a "changing universe rather than an unchanging one as the Idealists, Realists and Thomists had claimed"
