The Collected Works of John Dewey: 1882-1953
The Electronic Edition

The Center for Dewey Studies and the InteLex Corporation are pleased to announce the publication of The Collected Works of John Dewey, 1882-1953: The Electronic Edition. Distributed on a single CD-ROM in both Windows and Macintosh formats, this edition is the newest addition to InteLex's PAST MASTERS® series. It contains the complete text of Dewey's work as it appears in the thirty-seven volume print edition published by Southern Illinois University Press between 1967 and 1990.

The Collected Works of John Dewey, 1882-1953: The Electronic Edition is a critical reading text that offers unprecedented access to Dewey's work. It features superior Boolean and hypertext search tools. In order to maintain the integrity of the text, it is distributed in "read only" format. To facilitate scholarly use, however, user-defined "shadow" files allow the reader to create and maintain highlights, bookmarks, and "sticky notes" as a personalized overlay to the text.

Complete instructions concerning all of these features are contained in the printed and on-line documentation that accompanies the disk.

The Correspondence of John Dewey 

“The many sides of Dewey are displayed: philosopher, organizer, public intellectual and family man. Hickman's extensive 'Overview' is invaluable. Supplementary letters enrich the compilation: i.e., William James to F. C. S. Schiller ('Dewey is hard to understand.'). Because of its sophistication, the Folio VIEWS® requires several hours to master. However, once mastery of the interface is achieved, it is hard to imagine another way of examining a collected correspondence."

Drew Christie, University of New Hampshire
