Creating the Practical Man of Modernity : The Reception of John Dewey's Pedagogy in Mexico, Hardback Book

Creating the Practical Man of Modernity : The Reception of John Dewey's Pedagogy in Mexico Hardback

Part of the Routledge International Studies in the Philosophy of Education series

Description

Focused on the appropriation of John Dewey's ideas on progressive education in revolutionary Mexico, this book reconsiders the interpretation and application of Dewey's ideas in the world.

Rodriguez examines the use of Dewey in Mexico's state-building projects as a vantage point to assess the global impact of Dewey's pedagogy.

As these projects converged with Dewey's desire to employ education as a tool for effective social change, Rodriguez understands Dewey not just as a philosopher but as an integral part of the Americas' progressive movement and era.
