The John Dewey Society was founded in 1935, and was the first organization focused on philosophy of education. Its goal is to "keep alive John Dewey's commitment to the use of critical and reflective intelligence in the search for solutions to crucial problems in education and culture." The Society conducts a variety of activities, produces a peer-reviewed journal, and hosts the annual John Dewey Lecture at the American Educational Research Association conference, and offers the John Dewey Memorial Lecture at the annual Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development conference.

—John Dewey (18591952)
“The people I respect most behave as if they were immortal and as if society was eternal.”
—E.M. (Edward Morgan)
