Essays in Experimental Logic by John Dewey (1859 - 1952).

This project was abandoned and is now open as a group project.

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/essays-in-experimental-logic-by-john-dewey/

In this early collection of formative essays, acclaimed American philosopher John Dewey argues that the idealistic, realistic, and analytic schools of philosophy fail to take into account the pragmatic and experimental nature of experience - common to science and practical experience, but alien to the abstract theorizing of coherentist and correspondence theories of logic.

Here we find the essential groundwork for the mature naturalistic and process-oriented metaphysics that Dewey would elaborate in his later mature works such as Experience and Nature and Logic: The Theory of Inquiry.

In his long introduction, Dewey provides a summary and precis of his experimental logic, taking specifically pains to contrast his approach with the emerging analytic logic of Russell and Frege.

Chapters 3-6 take aim at the idealistic logic dominant in his time by providing a close reading and critique of the German logician Hermann Lotze.

Chapters 7-8 argue for the distinction between acquaintance with an external reality and knowledge of that reality.

Rather than disembodied and abstract, Dewey describes a logic arising out of the concrete interactions of organisms embedded within a natural environment. Dewey's logic of experience is essential to an understanding of his various projects, from education, to art, politics, pragmatism, and science.

  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you'd like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.

Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.
    Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

Quick update: I've been having some ongoing computer issues this month, so I'm running behind on recording/editing. Hopefully, the brief introduction will be up this weekend, and Chapter 01 shortly thereafter.

Stay tuned ...

Checking in: The last month has been especially hectic, so this project is running slower than anticipated. Dewey's seven part introduction is one of the longer sections of the text, and I've broken it into two parts to stay within the time limit. Both parts are recorded and the first part is about half-way through editing. My plan is to get part one of the introduction up before the holidays. Mainly, I just wanted to check in and let everyone know that I haven't abandoned the project.

I brought that section down by 5dB. Hopefully it flows a bit more smoothly now.
