We are currently at work on an edition of Dewey's lecture notes, including extensive notes on Hegel's Logic, as well as on social and political philosophy, and ethics.  This multi-year project is supported in part by a generous grant from Barbara Sawyer Koch and Donald F. Koch.  Contributions are welcome, and tax deductible.

June 2007
By the end of 2007, two new titles of interest to Dewey scholars will be available on CD from InteLex Corporation.  The first, a supplement to the three volumes of the Correspondence of John Dewey, will provide access to letters and other items pertaining to the disposition of Dewey's literary estate, the formation and activities of the John Dewey Foundation, and the formation and activities of the Co-operative Research on Dewey Publications project, now known as the Center for Dewey Studies at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. 

The second title, a supplement to the thirty-seven volume Collected Works of John Dewey, will provide access to various essays, addresses, reports of addresses, and interviews that were not included in the Collected Works, but whose publication recent scholarship now warrants. 

In addition to generous grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, this project has also been supported by Southern Illinois University Carbondale, the John Dewey Foundation, and private donors.

2007
During 2007 we will also publish a new edition of Works About Dewey.  This exhaustive bibliography of books and essays about the life and work of John Dewey will be available on CD from Southern Illinois University Press.  This project was made possible by a generous grant from the John Dewey Foundation.  Center editor Barbara Levine has already begun to collect materials for a future edition of Works About Dewey.  Funding for this ongoing project is supported in part by a generous grant from the Makiguchi Educational Research Institute. 

On June 13, 2007, in a ceremony in Tokyo at Soka University Japan, the title of Honorary Advisor to the Center for Dewey Studies was conferred on Dr. Daisaku Ikeda, founder of Soka University Japan and Soka University of America, and President of Soka Gakkai International.  The visit to Soka University also included visits to Soka high schools and the new Center for Dewey Studies at the Makiguchi Educational Research Institute.
