DALBOSCO, Claudio Almir. Education for democratic life in John Dewey: alternative against human and political violence. Roteiro. UNOESC [online]. 2018, vol.43, n.2, pp.449-470. ISSN 2177-6059.

This essay considers political corruption as one of the main forms of public violence. It contrasts it with the reflections by John Dewey in Chapter VII of Democracy and Education. Drawing on his notion of philosophy as social criticism, the essay summarizes his critical diagnosis of the nascent industrial society. It focuses on the predatory spirit of the American industrialist, which, based on liberal economy, leads to the isolation and social exclusion. It then recreates the ideal of democratic education justified by the aforementioned author, highlighting the importance of local community experiences. It concludes by defending the idea that providing new generations with opportunities for democratic educational experiences is the main antidote to corruption as a form of political violence.
