Long DescriptionExperience and Education is the best concise statement on education ever published by John Dewey, the man acknowledged to be the pre-eminent educational theorist of the twentieth century. Written more than two decades after Democracy and Education (Dewey's most comprehensive statement of his position in educational philosophy), this book demonstrates how Dewey reformulated his ideas as a result of his intervening experience with the progressive schools and in the light of the criticisms his theories had received. Analyzing both "traditional" and "progressive" education, Dr. Dewey here insists that neither the old nor the new education is adequate and that each is miseducative because neither of them applies the principles of a carefully developed philosophy of experience. Many pages of this volume illustrate Dr. Dewey's ideas for a philosophy of experience and its relation to education. He particularly urges that all teachers and educators looking for a new movement in education should think in terms of the deeped and larger issues of education rather than in terms of some divisive "ism" about education, even such an "ism" as "progressivism." His philosophy, here expressed in its most essential, most readable form, predicates an American educational system that respects all sources of experience, on that offers a true learning situation that is both historical and social, both orderly and dynamic.

Thank you all for your patence and understanding during the last several weeks as we added new equipment to the web site. We are all finished with the hardware portion of the upgrade.

We still have changes coming for the web site. We will always be improving but we have a few big changes coming to the web site soon that will make things a little easier for everyone.

But the big hardware upgrade is finished. We now have two new servers that share the duty of serving up web pages, product data and pictures to you.

The two servers share the work load so neither one has to do it all and this should offer faster serverice on a regular basis. But when we need to perform backups or other maintenance on one of the machines, we can switch the system to use only the other server and you will never know.

We hope that this stops most, if not all, down time in the future. The site has become far to popular to be off line for any lenght of time.

Again, thanks for your understanding.
