9780801437052: Dewey on Democracy

Revived appreciation of John Dewey as an inspirational advocate of participatory democracy has been tempered by criticism that he lacks a concrete political program. William R. Caspary makes the case for Dewey as a more discerning and challenging political theorist than this. Caspary draws from Dewey's extensive writings a concrete politics of participatory democracy, solving classic dilemmas confronting both democratic theorists and citizen activists. He compares Dewey's views with the full range of approaches in contemporary democratic theory and explores the underpinnings of Dewey's political theory by offering a thorough and innovative account of his philosophy of science, social science, and ethics. In Dewey's democratic theory, conflict is an inescapable condition of politics, according to Caspary, and is also an essential stimulus for the advancement of individuals and societies. Recognizing the centrality of conflict, Caspary claims, Dewey makes conflict resolution an overarching concept in his theory of democracy. Caspary argues that conflict resolution is central to Dewey's philosophy of ethics and of science. Caspary―a scholar with many years of experience as a social movement activist, ombudsperson, and mediator―traces this conflict resolution orientation throughout Dewey's writings.Caspary brings Dewey's abstract theories down to earth with examples from present-day social and political experiments, including progressive educational experiments, common-ground dialogues on abortion, the South African program for truth and reconciliation, and worker self-management cooperatives. These cases illustrate Dewey's linking of political action, social experimentation, and public discourse. They pin down specific meanings for Dewey's sometimes vague political maxims, and suggest workable programs. Throughout Caspary demonstrates the courage and vision of Dewey's unwavering commitment to participatory democracy.

Review :

"Caspary provides a thorough analysis of Dewey's disparate writings on ethics, philosophy of science, and politics. . . Caspary has advanced the discussion of Dewey's views on democracy by showing how they might be applied to current social movements. All of this Dewey himself would have welcomed as a hypothesis in need of further experimental testing."―Brian Hendley, University of Waterloo. Canadian Journal of Political Science

"This book does not just offer a clear reading of Dewey; it provides a subtle interpretation that is attentive to the nuances of Dewey's work and is not afraid to develop them in new directions. . . Thus, in this book we have an interesting contribution to Dewey studies, which frames Dewey's preject in a new and illuminating way and clarifies what the democratic practice that follows from his writings might look like."―Molly Cochran, Political Theory, June 2002

"William Caspary has crafted a fine, persuasive study of John Dewey's ethics and democratic politics. But best of all he has not been timid about applying Dewey's ethics to such hard cases as abortion or about venturing to suggest concretely what a Deweyan politics might look like."―Robert Westbrook, University of Rochester

"Well written and well organized, William Caspary's Dewey on Democracy presents an easy path for the reader to follow, offering a good understanding of Dewey's work and a broad knowledge of the secondary literature of the field."―Larry Hickman, Director, The Center for Dewey Studies, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale

"William Caspary manages to escape from writing another 'academic' treatment of Dewey, and to show how Dewey can be adapted to dealing with contemporary practical problems, especially those involving conflict."―Richard J. Bernstein, New School for Social Research, author of John Dewey, editor of Dewey on Experience, Nature, and Freedom
