Abstract: In this paper, the author (re)considers Dewey’s ideas about the role of education in developing democratic ideas and principles. His ideas are explored in the context of eroding civil discourse and delimited educational purposes. To frame Dewey’s ideas, the author considers the ontological suppositions and evolutions of the purpose of citizenship and democratic practices in socio-political discourse.
