The essays in this book explore the interconnections between democracy, education and the moral life. The authors discuss such questions as the responsibility of education and its institutions to cultivate socially responsible and critically literate citizens.

Villemain's appreciation for the intersections of the values of dem- racy, education, and the moral life was heightened by his doctoral work at Teachers College, Columbia University in the 1950s - where Dewey's legacy remained a powerful one. But it also continued during his career at Southern Illinois University where he collaborated in compiling and editing the collected works of John Dewey.
