John Dewey was a brilliant philosopher who took a scientific approach to intellectual development. This book takes this approach. It shows how the quality of education is affected by numerous distractions and how his approach can overcome it. His answer to this problem is what he calls the scientific mind. Scientific learning is more in line with the natural workings of a young mind and its tendencies toward experimentation, curiosity and imagination. Three sections of the book deal with 1) what thought really is, 2) the logical process of thought and 3) the actual training of thought. This book can break you free from set learning patterns and allow you to help others make significant breakthroughs in their learning abilities.
