Ep. 9 John Dewey & the Decline of American Education, with David Booz
David Booz and I talk (in his somewhat echo-y dining room) about Henry T. Edmondson III's 2006 book John Dewey and the Decline of American Education, a critique of Dewey that has become more relevant now as mainstream education has become increasingly devoted to social reform. David and I talk about human nature, the goals of education, the role of teaching methods, and the importance of tradition.
