    Complexity and Reductionism in Educational Philosophy—John Dewey’s Critical Approach in ‘Democracy and Education’ Reconsidered.Kersten Reich, Jim Garrison & Stefan Neubert - 2016 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 48 (10):997-1012.
    Against the background of the Deweyan tradition of Democracy and Education, we discuss problems of complexity and reductionism in education and educational philosophy. First, we investigate some of Dewey’s own criticisms of reductionist tendencies in the educational traditions, theories, and practices of his time. Secondly, we explore some important cases of reductionism in the educational debates of our own day and argue that a similar criticism in behalf of democracy and education is appropriate and can easily be based on Deweyan (...)

    Reconstructing Deweyan Pragmatism: A Review Essay.Stefan Neubert - 2009 - Educational Theory 59 (3):353-369.
    In this essay Stefan Neubert argues that John Dewey was a philosopher of reconstruction and that the best use we can make of him today is to reconstruct his work in and for our own contexts. Neubert distinguishes three necessary and equally important components of the overall project of reconstructing Deweyan pragmatism: first, to make strong and productive use of the tradition; second, to establish new theoretical links in order to develop new conceptual tools; and third, to reconsider implications of (...)

    Democracy and Education Reconsidered: Dewey After One Hundred Years.Jim Garrison, Stefan Neubert & Kersten Reich - 2015 - Routledge.
    _Democracy and Education Reconsidered_ highlights the continued relevance of John Dewey’s _Democracy and Education_ while also examining the need to reconstruct and re-contextualize Dewey’s educational philosophy for our time. The authors propose ways of revising Dewey’s thought in light of the challenges facing contemporary education and society, and address other themes not touched upon heavily in Dewey’s work, such as racism, feminism, post-industrial capitalism, and liquid modernity. As a final component, the authors integrate Dewey’s philosophy with more recent trends in (...)

    Pragmatism, Constructivism, and the Theory of Culture.Stefan Neubert - 2009 - In Larry A. Hickman, Stefan Neubert & Kersten Reich (eds.), John Dewey Between Pragmatism and Constructivism. Fordham University Press.
    This chapter discusses some of the central theoretical perspectives on culture and cultural practices implied in Pragmatism and interactive constructivism. The first part of the chapter highlights three major perspectives on cultural theory to be found in Dewey's thought: culture and experience, culture and habit, and culture and communication. The chapter then compares basic conceptual tools and interpretive approaches and shows that Dewey's work continues to provide fundamental resources in this field. Through this connection, it presents a brief introduction to (...)

  8. The Challenge of Pragmatism for Constructivism: Some Perspectives in the Programme of Cologne Constructivism.Stefan Neubert & Kersten Reich - 2006 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 20 (3):165-191.
    : In this paper we wish to give a short introduction to the programme of interactive constructivism, an approach founded by Kersten Reich and under further development at the University of Cologne. This introduction will be combined with a discussion about the importance of pragmatism as a source of a socially oriented constructivism. For the Cologne programme, especially the philosophy of John Dewey has been very helpful in this respect. We will try to show this relation in two main steps. (...)

    Language and Its Discontents: William James, Richard Rorty, and Interactive Constructivism.William Gavin, Stefan Neubert & Kersten Reich - 2010 - Contemporary Pragmatism 7 (2):105-130.
    The discussion in this essay is the result of a dialogue between William Gavin and the Cologne program of interactive constructiveism. First, we give an introduction to language in James and Rorty combined with constructivist reflections. Second, we provide an extended and deepened exploration of the relation of language and experience. Here we expand the discussion and also include perspectives from Dewey. Third, we draw conclusions to the important philosophical issues of relativism and arbitrariness as questions to which pragmatism as (...)
