Reconstruction of Experience:
John Dewey's Education and Psychology



The chief editor, Prof. Rex Li, reviewed many existing versions of Dewey’s selected works on education and psychology, notably Ratner (1940), Dworkin (1959), Archambault (1964), Hickman & Alexander (1998) and Simpson & Stack (2010). Based on selection commonalities, frequency of citation, present-day relevance and impact, the editor selected 17 papers in psychology and 25 papers in education. In psychology, it has covered Dewey’s writings on methodology, mind and consciousness, developmental psychology, social psychology, and thinking and intelligence. In education, it has covered theories and principles, curriculum and teaching, education and society, child learning and growth, and progressive education.
