Ironically, Dewey's logic was his "first and last love

Ironically, Dewey's logic was his "first and last love. The essays in this collection pay tribute to that love by addressing Dewey's philosophy of logic, from his work at the beginning of the twentieth century to the culmination of his logical thought in the 1938 volume, Logic: The Theory of Inquiry. All the essays are original to this volume and are written by leading Dewey scholars.

The text includes a new introduction by renowned Dewey scholar Tom Burke that places Essays in philosophical and historical context.

Talisse and Hester have here written a very good introduction to a very worthy thinker - American philosopher William James. These two writers, of course, had their work cut out for them. James, after all, wrote what would be known as 'classics' in no less than three fields: psychology, religious anthropology and, of course, philosophy.

Offering a new edition of Dewey’s 1916 collection of essays

This critical edition of John Dewey’s 1916 collection of writings on logic, Essays in Experimental Logic—in which Dewey presents his concept of logic as the theory of inquiry and his unique and innovative development of the relationship of inquiry to experience—is the first scholarly reprint of the work in one volume since 1954. Essays in Experimental Logic, edited by D. Micah Hester and Robert B. Talisse, uses the authoritative texts from the Collected Works of John Dewey, 1882–1953 (published by Southern Illinois University Press) and includes as well articles from leading journals representing various contemporary schools of philosophy that criticized Dewey’s experimentalism.

Culling materials from six volumes of the chronologically arranged Collected Works, this single-volume edition of Essays marks a crucial point in Dewey’s intellectual development: one in which Dewey critically engages idealistic and intuitionist theorists and lays the groundwork for his mature theory of inquiry. The text includes a new introduction by renowned Dewey scholar Tom Burke that places Essays in philosophical and historical context. In addition to the original essays, Essays in Experimental Logic also features five critical essays by Dewey’s contemporaries, including Bertrand Russell, Wendell T. Bush, R. F. Alfred Hoernlé, H. T. Costello, and C. S. Peirce.

IMPORTANT: This note concerns the specific edition by General Books LLC on offer here, not the actual text by Dewey!

If you are wondering what the point of this reprint by General Books LLC is, there is a publisher's note at the beginning of the text that reveals what the description here on Amazon does not: "We scanned this book using character recognition software that includes an automated spellcheck."

That's right. What you get is a text-scanned version of the historical original. Now, you might expect that at least this new version would be more easily readable or set in an appealing layout. However, this is not the case. On the contrary, the text is crammed in three columns per page with no paragraph breaks or formatting whatsoever. Even the "index" of about two columns at the end is not separated in any way:

"....
rist is the sole final guaranty for the san-
ity of the theorist.
INDEX
Analysis, 37ff., 426 ff. See also
Data; Sensations..."

Stay away from this, even if you prefer the luxury of a properly printed edition over the pdf version that is freely available anyway.

A must read for fans of Dewey. This collection expands on notions found elsewhere in Dewey's work and contributes with thoughts of others as well.
