    John Dewey, Confucius, and Global Philosophy

    No full text
    Bringing together the philosophies of John Dewey and Confucius, this work illustrates a means for cultural interaction and provides a model of global philosophy. Joseph Grange\u27s beautifully written book provides a unique synthesis of two major figures of world philosophy, John Dewey and Confucius, and points the way to a global philosophy based on American and Confucian values. Grange concentrates on the major themes of experience, felt intelligence, and culture to make the connections between these two giants of Western and Eastern thought. He explains why the Chinese called Dewey A Second Confucius, and deepens our understanding of Confucius\u27s concepts of the way (dao) of human excellence (ren). The important dimensions of American and Chinese cultural philosophy are welded into an argument that calls for the liberation of what is finest in both traditions. The work gives a new appreciation of fundamental issues facing Chinese and American relations and brings the opportunities and dangers of globalization into focus. “…Grange’s presentation of Dewey’s philosophy of experience and culture as well as the parallels he develops with Confucianism are truly valuable contributions to the field of comparative philosophy.” — Philosophy East & West “…a slim but important book for next steps in the world philosophical conversation. Grange is a subtle and creative thinker, and this volume whets the philosophical appetite for more in an increasingly shrinking global village.” — Dao Grange draws upon his sustained and substantial reading of the original reflections of John Dewey and of Confucius to bring into focus several seminal ideas from each of these two traditions that provide us with a resonance between them, and that can serve us as the terms of art necessary for undertaking such a Sino-American dialogue. — from the Foreword by Roger T. Ames Grange writes with a sure mastery of the relevant texts and secondary literature. His grasp of Dewey\u27s vast corpus is outstanding and his explication of Confucius\u27s ideas is crisp and on the mark. Grange is able to elicit connections between Confucius and Dewey without straining expert credulity or merely saying the obvious. — Robert Cummings Neville, author of Boston Confucianism: Portable Tradition in the Late-Modern Worldhttps://digitalcommons.usm.maine.edu/facbooks/1106/thumbnail.jp

    Dollars and Sense: Maine State Budgeting at a Crossroads

    Get PDF
    Dollars and Sense: Maine State Budgeting at a Crossroads provides a bird\u27s eye view and analysis. The value of this approach is the capacity to take an arm\u27s length look at state finances. We hope that the broader perspective will promote viewing expenditure and tax policy issues comprehensively, not as isolated slices of the state budget pie, but rather, as interdependent building blocks of a healthy fiscal system. There is an important limitation to an outside study, however, which is actually the same as its strength: distance from the whys and whens. We do not pretend to understand every policy area as fully as specialists within government, nor to be privy to the same information. Thus, this report will be best used as a working document, to encourage and facilitate directed inquiry, open and thoughtful discussion of issues, and hopefully, decisions that can place Maine on a sound fiscal footing for the 1990\u27s.https://digitalcommons.usm.maine.edu/facbooks/1236/thumbnail.jp
