John Dewey VII-Ethics, Part III, The World of Action

Reading: Dewey and Tufts-Ethics

Part III The World of Action (pp. [masked])

This is really the main point of Dewey's Ethics. Not theoretical considerations, universal laws or rhetorical arguments but finding the best response to real world problems. In Part III of Dewey and Tufts' Ethics we see Dewey's ethical ideas applied to practical issues of the day: social problems, war and peace, communism and fascism, economics and labor, marriage, the family, the environment, immigration, taxes, security, religion and, of course, education.

      i started an anecdote about Japanese after you said that many Japanese don't know all the rules or something to that effect, but didn't finish it because our waiter took our orders.

      (sorry, i keep hitting the return key to start a new paragraph.) my Japanese lit teacher was Japanese and three of my classmates were. he told them that it was actually much easier for most Japanese to read Yukio Mishima in English than in Japanese -- as long as they had a fair understanding of English -- because Mishima's Japanese was so formal and used so many obscure words.
