Dan Tedenljung’s new book, “Dads & Fathers: A Book on Dangerous Educators“ is for parents, but a very different one. It’s a book about something greater than you being fit to be a parent. It’s a book for anyone who wonders how the process of learning can be handled in a pragmatical way.
With the interest in the philosophy of pragmatism and a critique of the Western philosophy of knowledge, as well as in recent political philosophy, ethics, aesthetics, and philosophy of religion, a growing interest in knowledge development is now being directed back to the American philosopher who once influenced a whole world with his view of experience and education. John Dewey wrote hundreds of articles and many books on topics such as: democracy, education, ethics and philosophy. From John Dewey’s comprehensive text production, we have chosen what we consider is one of the best statements of experience and human development, namely the book entitled Experience & Education.
Tedenljung takes on John Dewey’s experimental method right from the beginning, from where it all starts, in the fostering of our own children. Let’s call our ambition a project of a parental attitude with global proportions. No matter what kind of educator people end up being: fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, grannies, teachers, scholars, managers or politicians; there is no better starting point than John Dewey’s transactional theory of learning if to understand how life unfold.
