Abstract

Dewey's The Child and the Curriculum contains an influential and remarkably clear account of how dualisms or false distinctions arise, how they can be taken up by different sects and so become the focus of opposing viewpoints, and how the dualism eventually can be dissolved and the dispute resolved; the account is illustrated by reference to the 2 schools of thought that oppose each other about the nature of the curriculum. In this article I argue that Dewey's views on dualisms show clear signs of the influence of the German philosopher Hegel's work on "dialectic," and I examine whether Dewey's method of resolution is applicable to all types of dispute. But Dewey's essay is also noteworthy for his use of the analogy of an explorer and a map to illustrate the relation between the psychological and the logical ordering of subject matter, and this is analyzed.
