John Dewey among the Theologians

with a Foreword by Terry A. Veling

Aaron J. Ghiloni

John Dewey’s fame as an educational theorist is matched by his infamy as a critic of traditional religion. This interdisciplinary work explores Dewey’s philosophy of education in correlation with Christian theology, proposing that we see «theology as education». In conversation with Friedrich Schleiermacher (the father of modern theology), St. Benedict (the founder of Western monasticism), and Rowan Williams (the renowned archbishop of Canterbury), this innovative and accessible book develops a distinctive «Deweyan theology». John Dewey among the Theologians will be welcomed by readers interested in interdisciplinary theology, educational theory, religious education, and pragmatism.
