    John Dewey ( – ) has made, arguably, the most significant contribution to the development of educational thinking in the twentieth century. Dewey’s philosophical pragmatism, concern with interaction, reflection and experience, and interest in community and democracy, were brought together to form a highly suggestive educative form. Peirce, James, & Dewey are generally regarded as the three originators of American pragmatism. Personally, I have noticed each of them for different reasons. James is interesting because of his radical empiricism, Dewey because of his understanding of inquiry as both cognitive and action-oriented, and Peirce because of his work on abduction.

    First Published: in John Dewey, Art as Experience, New York, Capricorn Books, , pp. “Having an Experience” was published in , when Dewey was seventy-five years of age.

Dewey's strong beliefs fired his passion for educational reform. After receiving a Ph.D. in philosophy from Johns Hopkins University and teaching at the University of Michigan, Dewey founded his now-famous Laboratory School at the University of Chicago in The Lab School came to have a powerful influence on American education. In designing.

    For young people who came of age in the early 's, a group that included Holmes, James and Peirce (Dewey was born in ), two events changed the fundamental assumptions of the world they had grown up in -- the publication of Darwin's ''Origin of Species'' and the Civil War. The belief that all genuine education comes about through experience does not mean that all experiences are genuinely or equally educative. - Experience and Education As the quote above indicates, Dewey did not hold all experiences to be of equal value and that it is only experiences that create positive growth in an individual that are worthwhile.
