From the Publisher: Deweyan Inquiry brings John Dewey’s theory of inquiry together with educational theory and practice. James Scott Johnston uses Dewey’s late masterpiece Logic: The Theory of Inquiry as a guide and looks at inquiry in science and science education, social science and social science education, art and art education, and embodiment and physical education. He argues that inquiry is self-correcting, and that this makes Deweyan inquiry particularly useful for the always-changing educational milieu.
