Book Title: Human Nature and Conduct

Author: John Dewey

Book Description:

In this work, Dewey provides a sense of the flourish that resides (or at least can reside) in everyday activities. He demonstrates the potential for growth that inheres in our interactions with the world, and he calls us to realize that potential by imbuing our day to day activities with greater meaning. Dewey further encourages us to think of resistance, not as a thing to be beaten down, but as an opportunity for reflection. To me, this is inspiring, and truly the model of a good life.
