- In his previous essay, “Action and Inquiry in Dewey’s philosophy,” Melvin L. Rogers contends that John Dewey modifies Aristotle’s epistemic categories (episteme, phronesis, and techne) and thereby offers a theory of person and inquiry that post-Analytical philosophers need. With his much deeper understanding of Dewey, Rogers once again gives us an Aristotelian interpretation of Dewey’s philosophy in his recent work, The Undiscovered Dewey: Religion, Morality, and the Ethos of Democracy. This time, however, he brings up Dewey’s theory of democracy, which can be understood in the context of “cooperative intelligence,” to borrow the phrase from James Campbell.
