Return to Nature?

Fred Dallmayr

University Press of Kentucky

As a dissatisfaction with Romanticism began to rise, philosophers turned to supplementing individual self-cultivation with progressive social reform. With that came a realization that nature and the world of phenomena were a continuous unfolding of potentialities. John Dewey was one of the leading intellectuals of the movement. Influenced by Hegel, Dewey's thought then evolved into a postidealist pragmatism. Part of this development was due to his encounter with Charles Darwin. Dewey's famous “Paul Carus Lectures,” published under the title Experience and Nature are reviewed.

Keywords:   nature, experience, progressive, reform, John Dewey, pragmatism
