Dewey as an epistemic figure in the changing fashion of governing the self
2008 (English)In: Inventing the Modern Self and John Dewey: Modernities and the Traveling of Pragmatism in Education / [ed] Thomas S. Popkewitz, New York: MacMillan Palgrave , 2008, 39-60 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Pragmatism provoked both admiration and fear, as global changes brought into the twentieth century provoked a revisioning of the cultural narratives about who the citizen and child are and should be. In a new book edited by Thomas S. Popkewitz, scholars representing twelve nations provide original chapters to explore the epistemic features and cultural theses figured in Dewey's writings as they assembled in the discourses of public schooling. The significance of Dewey in the book is not about Dewey as the messenger of pragmatism, but in locating different cultural, political, and educational terrains in which debates about modernity, the modern self, and the making of the citizen occurred.
