From the Paper:

"Ikeda, D (nd) John Dewey and Tsunesaburo Makiguchi: Confluences of Thought and Action. Online available at:

"This work is a paper on the "parallels between the life and thinking of the Japanese educator and activist Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871-1944) and the great American philosopher John Dewey (1859-1952)." The writing tells of the similarities in the philosophy of Dewey and Makiguchi relating to experiential learning. Stated in this work is: "As contemporaries, Dewey and Makiguchi shaped and were shaped by the intellectual milieu of the latter half of the nineteenth century, the legacy of Durkheim, Darwin, Hegel and Kant." Further stated is that there exists "important parallels in their attempts to extend the realm of pragmatic thinking; to take it beyond the classroom and institutions of education to the broader framework of building communities and societies; to look with fresh eyes at the role of religion in propelling that effort."
