|Other Titles:||The Practice of John Dewey's Thought in Art Experience|
Department od Education, NTNU
John Dewey’s thought has been understood from the points of pragmatism, experimentalism, or instrumentalism. However, Dewey named his own thought “natural empiricism” (or “empirical naturalism”) in 1925, which represents the philosopher’s thought in via later works. It would be more reasonable if we explore Dewey’s thought via this point of view. According to Dewey, traditional empiricists regarded experience only as fragments of senses. In Dewey’s view, “experience” should be “double-barrelled”, including both daily fragments and rational judgement. Experience compromises the interaction of doing and undergoing. Only a whole experience, which includes primary and secondary experience, could be crowned as the essence of human civilization. Art experience is a whole, consummatory experience, which has beginning, intermediate, and final stages. The displaying activities held by Dewey and his colleagues in National Educational Association and the fused occupations in the Laboratory School were vivid evidence of art experience. This essay includes several concluding comments.
