In pointing out a direction that an inquiry might take, oﬀering a suggestion is like indicating that we should try a certain path when hiking across unfamiliar territory. Just as with hiking, one cannot sensibly oﬀer such a suggestion without taking in the general lie of the land, having a sense of how that path will help us to get to our destination, and of how it compares to other alternatives that present themselves.

Since by ‘think’ he meant ‘inquire’, it was the development of inquiring minds to which he referred. Even if Dewey’s claim may be criticised for blithely ignoring a whole raft of outcomes that look to be legitimate ones for school education, he was certainly right to stress the central place of developing students’ ability to think. And although our schools are in many ways much closer to Dewey in this regard than those he addressed some ninety years ago, we still have far to go. I hope that this book may in some small way help us to continue to move in Dewey’s direction, and accordingly I wish you every success in your attempts to improve the quality of your students’ thinking.
