[SOLO] Human Nature and Conduct - Part 4, Conclusion

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/human-nature-and-conduct-an-introduction-to-social-psychology-part-4-by-john-dewey/

John Dewey, an early 20th Century American philosopher, psychologist, educational theorist. This project encompasses Part 4 of 4 of his book Human Nature and Conduct, An Introduction to Social Psychology, published in 1922. Dewey's uses the words "HABIT" and "Impulse" as a specialized catch-all words to describe how a person and his/her objective environment interact. This interaction is the basis for moral and ethical judgments. Dewey writes: "All habits are demands for certain kinds of activity; and they constitute the self.” In other places he also asserts that "Habits are Will." In the third part of the book, Dewey describes how we make ethical judgments (Dramatic Rehearsal) on the occasions which call upon the exercise of intelligence, and the relationship among aims, goals, means and ends, and emotions.

In this fourth section he ties together the preceding concepts and conclusions

Part 4: Conclusion

Section I: The Good of Activity
Better and worse; morality a process; evolution and progress; optimism; Epicureanism; making others happy.

Section II: Morals are Human
Humane morals; natural law and morals; place of science.

Section III: What is Freedom?
Elements in freedom; capacity in action; novel possibilities; force of desire.

Section IV: Morality is Social
Conscience and responsibility; social pressure and opportunity; exaggeration of blame; importance of social psychology; category of right; the community of religious symbol.

Soloist supplementary note: Very important but sometimes overlooked is his concept in Part 3 of the book of "Dramatic Rehearsal" which to me means: when we are deliberating over a course of action, we don't just tote up an arithmetic series of "if I do THIS, then THIS will happen, and then THIS will happen, etc. and weigh out the pluses and minuses" as a Utilitarian would do. No, what we do, says Dewey, is that at every step of divining what the future will hold, we examine how we FEEL about the situation. For example, if we're planning a chess move, we don't think to ourselves merely "if I make THIS move, I'll weaken my king side, but I'll gain a pawn" No, instead we think "if I make THIS move, I'll weaken my king side {Dang it all to hecky darn! :twisted: }, but I'll gain a pawn {Yaaaay! hoorah! :clap: }". The force of our subjective and emotive intensity sway the final decisions.

A final item: a 60-second video of Dewey delivering a speech: https://youtu.be/opXKmwg8VQM?t=372

All set.
Please let me know when you have updated the summary.
You can safely ignore the id tags -- they are added automatically and anything you enter gets over-written.
Please shorten the file name! At this point, you can choose whatever you wish but I'd suggest something like humannatureandconduct4 or even just humannature4

Anything else, just let me know.

I'd sure love the DPL on this, but, unfortunately I'm already backed up on my DPL projects.

Sections 1 and 2 are PL OK. :thumbs:

Sections 3 and 4 are both spot check PL OK. Congratulations on your solo, it's been a pleasure.

As for the car wash, I got sick during the last love bug season so I think the car is a lost cause and will require painting to fix. :roll: Thanks for the offer though. :D
