By Staff


David Hildebrand, associate professor of philosophy at the University of Colorado Denver, presented a paper on "Dewey's Last Lost Book: Initial Impressions and Reflections" at John Dewey's 150th birthday celebration. In New York at last month's International Conference on Dewey's Impact on America and the World, a panel discussed the contents and significance of a recently discovered book manuscript that Dewey wrote late in his career, and which was long presumed lost in a New York City taxi.
