Volume 14 of "The Middle Works of John Dewey, 18991924," series provides an authoritative edition of Dewey s "Human Nature and Conduct. A Modern Language Association Committee on Scholarly Editions textual edition.""""Human Nature and Conduct "evolved from the West Memorial Foundation lectures at Stanford University. The lectures were extensively rewritten and expanded into one of Dewey s best-known works. As Murray G. Murphey says in his Introduction, It was a work in which Dewey sought to make explicit the social character of his psychology and philosophysomething which had long been evident but never so clearly spelled out. Subtitled An Introduction to Social Psychology, "Human Nature and Conduct "sets forth Dewey s view that habits are social functions, and that social phenomena, such as habit and custom and scientific methods of inquiry are moral and natural. Dewey concludes, Within the flickering inconsequential acts of separate selves dwells a sense of the whole which claims and dignifies them. In its presence we put off mortality and live in the universal. "
