About the Author

Thomas M. Alexander is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.


"This book puts Dewey's aesthetics and his general philosophical position in a refreshing perspective. It sustains a sensitive account of Dewey's conception of meaning and shows how some critics of the relation of aesthetics to the whole of his philosophy have overlooked the way aesthetic meaning was central to Dewey's thought before and after he distanced himself from idealism. The author knows his way inside Dewey's philosophy, and he has done an excellent job of explaining Dewey." - Carl R. Hausman "This is a highly detailed, sophisticated monograph on Dewey's aesthetics. More specifically it aims to investigate the criticism against Dewey levelled by Pepper and Croce that Dewey's aesthetic theory was idealistic and therefore in contradiction with his naturalistic metaphysics of pragmatism. Alexander defends Dewey against the charge, and in the process provides an extraordinarily subtle and thorough analysis of Dewey's development from idealism to pragmatism." - Robert Cummings Neville
