How We Think - Dewey

How We Think - Dewey

Published by st27383
Our schools are troubled with a multiplication of
studies, each in turn having its own multiplication of
materials and principles. Our teachers find their tasks
made heavier in that they have come to deal with
pupils individually and not merely in mass. Unless
these steps in advance are to end in distraction, some
clew of unity, some principle that makes for simplification,
must be found. This book represents the conviction
that the needed steadying and centralizing factor
is found in adopting as the end of endeavor that attitude
of mind, that habit of thought, which we call
scientific...that the native and unspoiled
attitude of childhood, marked by ardent curiosity, fertile
imagination, and love of experimental inquiry, is near,
very near, to the attitude of the scientific mind. If
these pages assist any to appreciate this kinship and to
consider seriously how its recognition in educational
practice would make for individual happiness and the
reduction of social waste, the book will amply have
served its purpose.
