Il valore educativo dell’esperienza in John Dewey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


One of the most important principles of John Dewey's thinking is surely that of experience reputed to generate growth and training for each individual. Therefore, this contribution aims to first illustrate some works of youth, in which Dewey, with a clear and obvious reference to Immanuel Kant, has matured the idea of an experience producing human and social knowledge and maturation; later will be illustrated some writings of maturity, where it is possible to trace an evolution of the concept of experience, to which Dewey attributed an educational value that had to be encouraged in the school contexts of his time in order to subvert the balance of traditional teaching.
