The roots where Socrates states that the sole purpose of Philosophy is to show the right way to live or words to that effect. He does this by grounding Philosophy right where it belongs - in Nature.
He also brings along the Human Species for a ride.
That simple concept, that Humankind is a part of Nature, not apart from it, is all it takes. What results from that concept is only the simplification of Philosophy, and its return to its rightful place. Dewey brings this all to head with his stridently impassioned final chapter. It is not an easy read, but it is well-written and artfully structured.
To the determined, nuggets of wisdom await. They populate this book like clams at low tide, awaiting to be dug out and eventually savored in a nutritious chowder. Please excuse the bad poetry above I like clam chowder , but this is one of the most important works in the School of Philosophy. Read it, and be nourished.

This is an important contribution to Western thought -- not on a scale of Whitehead's "Process and Reality," or Murdoch's "Metaphysics as a Guide to Morals," but far above the irritating twaddle that passes for "analytical metaphysics," or the fatuous "rejection" as though that was possible!
This book challenges the reader, and demands considerable thought and attention. This Kindle edition is a true eBook, with an active ToC, and hypertexted footnotes. This is an important contribution to digital scholarship. Starting with a thorough examination of philosophical method, Dewey examines the interrelationship of experience and nature, and upon the basis of empirical naturalism analyzes experience, the formulation of law, the role of language and social factors in knowledge, the nature of mind, and the final interrelation of mind and matter.

Dewey, as in his other mature philosophy, attempts to replace the traditional separation of nature and experience with the idea of continuity, using the traditional separation of nature and experience with the idea of continuity, using the concept of language as the bridge.
Dewey's treatment of central problems in philosophy and philosophy of science is profound, yet extremely easy to follow. His range of subject matter is very wide, from the anthropology of Malinowski to gravity, evolution, and the role of art, and his insights are clear and valuable. Scientists, philosophers of science, philosophers, and students of American history of thought will all find this one of the most profitable works by a great 20th-century thinker.
Experience And Nature
Dewey seems to be on to something important in his critique of non-historical metaphysics, so I found certain parts of this book very interesting. But in general I think his style of presentation is This is Dewey's mature metaphysical work. It is an empirical investigation of the generic traits of all natural existences. Experience in all its complexity is taken to manifest the fundamental traits John Dewey was born in in Burlington, Vermont.
