He was one of the most prominent American scholars in the first half of the twentieth century. The overriding theme of Dewey's works was his profound belief in democracy , be it in politics, education, or communication and journalism.

Growth, Experience and Nature in Dewey’s Philosophy and Chinese Philosophy
Natural existence is the world of fragility, unpredictability, contingencies, due to the conflict of opposing forces, whose energy sustains the conservation or deterioration of life, reason for the unworthiness of experience. Among the elements that make up nature in the scope of life are humans, who, having the ability to develop investigative and reflective thinking, and favored by their plastic nature, can rise to the level of improvement in social existence, particularly through education. The purpose of this paper suggests the effort to understand the experience of existence in Dewey, since the concept of experience is nuclear in his thinking, it needs to be clarified to distinguish it from that pertaining to other authors who make it unique in the theoretical context adopted. The concept is originally structured in this primary level of relations, extending to the social, educational and political scope. Although the term existence may refer us to the very philosophical thinking of the twentieth century, especially that flourished in the period after the Great World Wars, more specifically, from the s, Dewey used this concept to typify the conceptual basis of his theory outlining the theoretical framework of his philosophy driven by the discussion of naturalism that thrived in the previous century.
In addition, Dewey developed extensive and often systematic views in ethics, epistemology, logic, metaphysics, aesthetics, and philosophy of religion. Because Dewey typically took a genealogical approach that couched his own view within the larger history of philosophy, one may also find a fully developed metaphilosophy in his work.

Such experience may arise from the interaction between an organism and its environment, and is linked to past, present and future experience.

The former stage involves direct experience and the latter is a reflective stage.
John Dewey is primarily known for two things: being one of the big names in pragmatism , and for his highly influential claims about education , specifically pointing out the active nature of learning such that simply sitting students down and telling them things is not very effective. Now, Dewey was born in , and wrote about pragmatism and truth near the turn of the century, about the same time as William James, and wrote his important book about education in you might want to listen to some of the Librivox version of that. By , we're dealing with mature Dewey trying to get out his overall worldview, his take on the enterprise of philosophy. His basic critique is the same as what we've seen in Whitehead and Merleau-Ponty , i. No, Dewey counters: what we start with is concrete, gross experience, which is not experience of "sense data" or any other theoretical entity, but which is experience of tables, people, feelings, values, etc.
