In this collection of informal, highly readable essays, originally published between 1897 and 1909, Dewey articulates his now classic philosophical concepts of knowledge and truth and the nature of reality. Here Dewey introduces his scientific method and uses critical intelligence to reject the traditional ways of viewing philosophical discourse. Knowledge cannot be divorced from experience; it is gradually acquired through interaction with nature.

The Influence of Darwin on Philosophy, and Other Essays in Contemporary Thought.

Presenting Dewey’ s new view of philosophical inquiryThis critical edition of The Influence of Darwin on Philosophy and Other Essays in Contemporary Thought presents the results of John Dewey’ s patient construction, throughout the previous sixteen years, of the radically new view of the methods and concerns of philosophical inquiry. It was a view that he continued to defend for the rest of his life. In the 1910 The Influence of Darwin on Philosophy and Other Essays in Contemporary Thought— the first collection of Dewey’ s previously published, edited essays— John Dewey provided readers with an overview of the scope and direction of his philosophical vision in one volume. The order in which the eleven essays were presented was a reverse chronology, with more recently published essays appearing first. The collection of eleven essays offered a detailed portrait of Dewey’ s proposed reconstruction of the traditional concepts of knowledge and truth. It furthermore elaborated on how his new logic and his proposal regarding knowledge and truth fit comfortably together, not only with each other but also with a pragmatically proper understanding of belief, reality, and experience. Because material in the Collected Works of John Dewey, 1882– 1953 was published chronologically, however, the essays published together in the 1910 Darwin book have appeared in seven different volumes in the Collected Works. This new, critical edition restores a classic collection of essays authored and edited by John Dewey as they originally appeared in the volume. The edition is presented with ancillary materials, including responses by Dewey’ s critics and an introduction by Douglas Browning.

An important text unfortunately rendered close to unreadable by its digital transmogrification.

I am a big fan of John Dewey's work. Like many other Dewey readers, I find his work frustratingly hard to penetrate. This book is a bit more readable than most collections, but is still quite difficult.
First, all of these essays speak on the common theme of pragmatic metaphysics (epistemology?). This alone is a difficult (but immensely rewarding) subject. Fortunately, two of the best essays here ("Nature and its good" and "A short catechism concerning truth") are in dialogue form - something Dewey did only twice.
Other than those two there is some brilliant - and tedious - philosophy here. Of course, the title article needs no introduction - it is a standard and rightly so. "The experimental theory of knowledge" and "The intellectualist criterion of truth" both go far in explaining how Dewey breaks the dualism of real/ideal in metaphysics. "Beleifs and Existences" is also a great essay for understanding how Dewey looks at beliefs, not objects, as the 'creator of the world'.
Overall, I have to say that, in honesty, the book gets quite repititious about 2/3rds through. The basic gist is that the essays here map out Dewey's 'experimentalism' by showing how both the intellectualist idea of a priori or absolute truth 'out there', and empiricist concept of passive experience, are both flawed. Dewey outlays his brand of pragmatism, stemming from the naturalism touched on in title essay.
For Dewey fans, this is a great read. For those semi-interested and versed in Dewey, recommended but possibly after you've read "Quest for Certainty" (which, I think, is a more 'important' and even 'inviting' book). For the novice to Dewey, this is not the book to get. Read 'The Essential Dewey: vol. 1" first.

Whatever one's views of Dewey one has to wonder if the confusing influence of Darwinism is partly responsible for the inability of pragmatism to generate any real philosphical lift. Dewey's work seems to clock the approximate point at which everyone fell for the new Darwinian foundationalism, unless it was Nietzsche, or else Marx/Engles, who was the first. Does it never occur to anyone that philosophy should produce a critique of Darwin? The onset of idiocy here goes a long way toward explaining the decline of twentieth century philosophy.
