The Hidden Link in Dewey's Theory of Evaluation


by Gail Kennedy 1955

The author reviews the theory of evaluation from which Dewey's whole philosophy is developed, and discloses the hidden link. What makes it so difficult for Dewey's critics to understand his theory of evaluation is that he nowhere explicitly shows that the only possible answer to the question, Why should I do this? must be, in effect, Because this is the most adequate solution of the problem indicated by your question. It is his failure to be sufficiently explicit on this point which constitutes what the author calls the hidden link in Dewey's theory of evaluation.
