John Dewey : propositions pour une reconstruction démocratique de l’université : éléments théoriques, historiques et prospectifs pour une philosophie de l’éducation pragmatiste de l’enseignement supérieur

Abstract : The PhD work submitted here is inspired by a transdisciplinary pragmatist approach in which philosophy of education, epistemology, ethics and political philosophy converge in an attempt to answer the following question: What can John Dewey's pragmatism bring us as theoretical tools for thinking about the future of today's academic institutions? To answer this question, we hypothesize that the complex and extensive conception of democracy by the pragmatist philosophy provides a rigorous theoretical framework and a relevant epistemological, ethical and pedagogical perspective for reconstructing a new political-educational project of a democratic university. So it's this particular university project that we're reconstructing in three ways here. First of all, on a theoretical point of view, we're trying to account for what that project was in the time of John Dewey. Then, historically, we examine the academic experiments carried out at that time, in different places in the United States, based on this project. Finally, in a prospective way, we seek to formulate, from these first two theoretical and historical investigations, new elements to update this project for our days. The ambition of this work is to propose new ways of thinking about the future of the university based on a democratic and pragmatic philosophy of education in higher education.
