Review quote

"Sleeper does an excellent job of explaining the often overlooked aspects of Dewey's philosophy. This work allows the reader to investigate different angles of this philosophy which has influenced so many other fields." -- Journal of South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies ADVANCE PRAISE "In terms of scholarship, substance, and style, this book is a masterpiece in the original sense of the term. It is indispensable for comprehending Dewey's project in the manner he himself conceived this project." -- Vincent Colapietro, newsletter for the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy "[In] this carefully crafted and elegantly phrased book, Sleeper has given us a profound analysis and an original reassessment and reconstruction of Dewey's conception of philosophy, especially in relation to his logic and metaphysics. Other Dewey scholars may differ in their interpretation of various points, but all are in Sleeper's debt for demonstrating that Dewey's philosophy still stimulates fresh thinking on important issues in theory and practice." -- Sidney Ratner, Journal of Speculative Philosophy "This essay ... Is unquestionably the best book written on Dewey's logic and among the very best studies of his philosophy." -- H. S. Thayer, Canadian Philosophical Review "[In] this carefully crafted and elegantly phrased book, Sleeper has given us a profound analysis and an original reassessment and reconstruction of Dewey's conception of philosophy, especially in relation to his logic and metaphysics.
