Democracy and Education was written before the assemblyline had achieved its dominant position in the industrialworld and before mechanization had depopulated the farmsof America.
Interesting history and possible solutions.
Dewey on the humanization of work front running the dramatic changes of and in work in an industrial age?
Note here the potential coupling of democracy and education as dovetailing ideas rather than separate ideas which can be used simultaneously. We should take care here not to end up with potential baggage that could result in society and culture the way scholasticism combined education and religion in the middle ages onward.
Dewey was first of all a social reformer.
