This book provides a fresh critique of John Dewey and the progressive tradition and warns against the superficial renaissance of Deweyan philosophy present in many of todays modern liberal educational reform movements. Challenging the four pillars of Deweys pragmatism science, nature, democracy, experience Paringer argues for a critical or radical education praxis that more sensitively comes to grips with the difficulties of the nuclearized, postmodern world.
