520    Sidney Hook, one of America's leading social philosophers,
       was a dedicated student and friend of John Dewey, one of 
       the most influential philosophers of the twentieth 
       century. In this timeless volume, Hook discusses the 
       leading philosophical ideas of his mentor to highlight 
       Dewey's central themes, their implications, and the 
       relevance of his vision to the problems of American 
       culture. Hook begins with a brief sketch of John Dewey's 
       life and illustrious career. He then outlines Dewey's 
       thoughts on philosophy and culture; the nature of ideas; 
       truth; logic and action; body, mind, and behavior; 
       standards, ends, and means; the good society; education; 
       art; human nature; and democracy.
