Summary:
One of America's greatest philosophers outlines a faith that is not confined to sect, class, or race. Dr. Dewey calls for the emancipation of the true religious quality from the heritage of dogmatism and supernaturalism that characterizes historical religions. He describes a positive, practical, and dynamic faith, verified and supported by the intellect and evolving with the progress of social and scientific knowledge. "The pure distillation of the thought of a great mind on the great subject of religion."-John Haynes Holmes, New York Herald Tribune
