The Deweyan Individual as Ecological

View File

This paper serves as the first stage for developing an ecological model for understanding John Dewey’s notion of the individual. It first presents three main criticisms of Dewey’s views and claims that these critics present truncated versions of the Deweyan individual. It then examines Dewey's writings on the individual and argues that an ecological model provides a better way of understanding the Deweyan individual and of going beyond Dewey’s writings to take up race, class, gender, and sexuality issues within a Deweyan frame.
