Current Reading

This blog is primarily for me to blog my responses to books that I'm reading. Sometimes I blog about other stuff too, though.

I'm currently re-reading Systems of Survival by Jane Jacobs.

Hofstadter, chapter 14: Dewey

I haven't read Dewey, only Hofstadter's synopsis of a long and prolific career.  I will not try to summarize the summary, but I will quote the last sentence of the chapter, because it encapsulates much that is tragic in progressive education:  "And so the quest for a method of institutionalizing the proper anti-institutional methods goes on."

Indeed.
