Experimental Studies in Kindergarten Theory and Practice: Reasoning in Early Childhood


by John Dewey — 1914

Stenographic report of paper presented before the Department of Kindergarten Education, Teachers College Alumni Conference, February 21, 1913. When I seriously began to give my mind to the subject that was selected for me, I found nothing very special to say about the reasoning of early childhood.1 There is not any reasoning of early childhood which is different from the reasoning of later childhood, adolescence, or adults. There is reasoning in little children just as there may be in a grown up man or woman, but there is not reasoning of early childhood if you mean by that “of,” something which as reasoning can be marked off definitely from reasoning somewhere else.
