John Dewey Quotes

  • ''The only thing that is unqualifiedly given is the total pervasive quality; and the objection to calling it "given" is that the word suggests something to which it is given, mind or thought or consciousness or whatever, as well possibly as something that gives.''
    John Dewey (1859-1952), U.S. philosopher. Originally published in The Symposium (1930). "Qualitative Thought," repr. In On Experience, Nature and Freedom, ed. Richard J. Bernstein (1960).
