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. Originally called “The Association for the Study of Education in its Social Aspects,” the name was changed to the John Dewey Society in early 1936.
