Example text

Dewey’s refusal to address Russell’s preoccupations was indeed wilful. He held that a great deal of the philosophy of his time was addressed to the wrong questions. His call in 1917 for a ‘Recovery of Philosophy’ was a call to rethink the questions with which philosophy should concern itself. Is it not time that philosophers turned from the attempt to determine the comparative merits of various replies to the questions to a consideration of the claims of the questions (M10, p. 24)? This is not simply a matter of one man urging the pursuit of questions which do not interest another.

299). What Dewey avoids by this manoeuvre is a notion of feeling as (or as the accompaniment of) pure passivity. A paragraph introduced in 1891 33 SENSATION, EMOTION AND REFLEX ACTION (cp. E2, p. 240 and p. lxxii) seems to capitulate to this notion of pure passivity by distinguishing ‘mere feeling and developed feeling—interest’. But in fact, ‘mere’ or ‘bare’ feeling is an abstraction (not something which can exist on its own) arrived at by considering the concrete feeling ‘apart from its connections’.

For the famous reflex arc article brings to a head a line of thought which begins to take shape in Dewey’s treatment of emotion. e. The theory of emotions which is presented in Chapter XXV of James’s work (1890, II) stands in opposition to an account which James attributes to ‘common sense’, but which is also clearly embraced by Cartesianism and classical empiricism. According to this account, a mental perception (of, for example, a loss, an insult or a mortal danger) excites emotions (of grief, anger or fear) which in turn give rise to actions (weeping, striking or running away).
