The John Dewey Society is a space for building and sustaining the networks of students and scholars of Deweyan philosophy. The John Dewey Society grew out of a series of discussions held in 1934 and early 1935, which helped give birth to the John Dewey Society in early 1936. Please join us as we continue the legacy of John Dewey.

New members of the John Dewey Society will receive two classic books—thanks to the Tanner Foundation. The books include: John Dewey’s The Sources of a Science of Education and Dan Tanner’s Crusade for Democracy: Progressive Education at the Crossroads. Dan Tanner’s book provides a detailed history of the John Dewey Society.
