It is argued here that understanding John Dewey's thought as that of a prodigal liberal or a fellow traveller does not capture the complexity of his work. It is also important to recognise the portion of his work that is historie morale.

It is a work that simultaneously pursues modernity and the past — for the sake of coping with the present. It also calls attention to an unnoticed element in his work 'inexperience'
