“A visit to Dewey’s grave site in Burlington, Vermont” by David Hansen

john-dewey-graveRecently, David Hansen, Director of the Program in Philosophy and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, had the opportunity to visit Dewey’s grave site located in Burlington, Vermont.

In regard to the visit, Professor Hansen noted:
The site is beautifully tucked into a corner of Allen Chapel on the campus of the University of Vermont, where Dewey received his undergraduate degree in 1879.  I found the occasion quite moving, and as Elaine and I stood for awhile in the quiet of birdsong and insects humming, I read to her a few of Dewey’s poems memorably collected by Jo Ann Boydston.
