      Chapter Essential This item is on the Topic 2 Homepage in Blackboard and presents a very thoughtful summary of John Dewey's ideas on inquiry written by a professional philosopher called James Campbell. He has kindly given permission to use this material from his book 'Understanding John Dewey' published in 1995.

    4. IMPORTANT

      In reading pages 45 to 53, it is important to note that Dewey is writing about the general features of inquiry that play out in many different situations, including everyday problem solving and complex scientific investigations. These features describe how people solve problems in real situations without necessarily being conscious of the process; in other words, people just naturally inquire without thinking about it. However, this does not mean people always enact Dewey's 5 phases of inquiry, only that the five phases together (according to Dewey) constitute the most rigorous inquiry process for solving practical problems and producing reliable knowledge.
