Example text

Unlike those who distort Darwinism into a simplistic norm of ‘‘survival of the fittest’’, Dewey found in Darwin other, more critical and less deterministic, possibilities. For Dewey, Darwin does not provide norms by which one could engineer societal development or produce deterministic solutions. As he puts it: ‘‘We do not solve them: we get over them. ’’ Dewey attributes this approach to ‘‘the greatest dissolvent in contemporary thought of old questions, the greatest precipitant of new methods, new intentions, new problems [which] is the one effected by the scientific revolution that found its climax in the ‘Origin of Species’’’.

In an essay that he wrote about the influence of Darwinism on philosophy, Dewey captures the ‘‘intellectual transformation’’ that came into effect through Darwin’s new logic as follows: Interest shifts from the wholesale essence back of special changes to the question of how special changes serve and defeat concrete purposes; shifts from an intelligence that shaped things once for all to the particular intelligences which things are even now shaping; shifts from an ultimate goal of good to the direct increments of justice and happiness that intelligent administration of existent conditions may beget and that present carelessness or stupidity will destroy or forego.

This affection is far from ‘‘sentimental’’ in the sense given to approaches that appear emotional. By an affective engagement I would allude to a sense of value that Dewey invests and recognizes in his readers. He is not simply saying it as he sees it without any concern for his interlocutor’s position. Even when he is firm in his argument he remains open to the approach that comes from the other direction. This approach recognizes how we advance through our habits of mind, which are invariably formed by a whole genealogy of other habits, revealing the historical character of our dispositions.
