In A Common Faith, eminent American philosopher John Dewey calls for the emancipation of the true religious quality” from the heritage of dogmatism and supernaturalism that he believes characterizes historical religions. He describes how the depth of religious experience and the creative role of faith in the resources of experience to generate meaning and value can be cultivated without making cognitive claims that compete with or contend with scientific ones. In a new introduction, Dewey scholar Thomas M. Alexander contextualizes the text for students and scholars by providing an overview of Dewey and his philosophy, key concepts in A Common Faith, and reactions to the text.
John Dewey (1859–1952) was an American philosopher, psychologist, and educational reformer. Thomas Alexander is professor of philosophy at Southern Indiana University and coeditor of The Essential Dewey, Volumes 1 and 2. He lives in Murphysboro, IL.
