Description


This book uses John Dewey to articulate discursive practices that would help citizens form better intellectual and moral relationships with a 'liquid' global political environment characterized by flexible accumulation, uneven development, and other phenomenon produced by what Frederic Jameson characterizes increased 'space-time compression.' These practices, derived from Dewey's aesthetic interpretation of thinking and effective classroom practice, form the basis of an 'ethical life' encouraging individuals to build meditative links between their particular interests and their more universal implications.
