Offering a new edition of Deweyas 1916 collection of essays This critical edition of John Deweyas 1916 collection of writings on logic, Essays in Experimental Logicain which Dewey presents his concept of logic as the theory of inquiry and his unique and innovative development of the relationship of inquiry to experienceais the first scholarly reprint of the work in one volume since 1954. Essays in Experimental Logic, edited by D. Micah Hester and Robert B. Talisse, uses the authoritative texts from the Collected Works of John Dewey, 1882a1953 (published by Southern Illinois University Press) and includes as well articles from leading journals representing various contemporary schools of philosophy that criticized Deweyas experimentalism. Culling materials from six volumes of the chronologically arranged Collected Works, this single-volume edition of Essays marks a crucial point in Deweyas intellectual development: one in which Dewey critically engages idealistic and intuitionist theorists and lays the groundwork for his mature theory of inquiry. The text includes a new introduction by renowned Dewey scholar Tom Burke that places Essays in philosophical and historical context. In addition to the original essays, Essays in Experimental Logic also features five critical essays by Deweyas contemporaries, including Bertrand Russell, Wendell T. Bush, R. F. Alfred HoernlAc, H. T. Costello, and C. S. Peirce.Offering a new edition of Deweyas 1916 collection of essays This critical edition of John Deweyas 1916 collection of writings on logic, Essays in Experimental Logicain which Dewey presents his concept of logic as the theory of inquiry ...
