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



Quote:

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 philosopher 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.

If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

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 ...

John

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.

Chapter 01
Introduction (§ I - IV)
Is ready for PL: https://librivox.org/uploads/dlolso21/experimentallogic_01_dewey_128kb.mp3

Dewey doesn't go out of his way to make the going easy.

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