The material as well as the workspace are freely accessible to visitors during library hours. The Center offers consultation for scientific work on Pragmatism in general and on John Dewey in particular. Furthermore, we are happy to provide contacts to other scholars working on Pragmatism. Scholarship The Center conducts workshops dedicated to developing John Dewey’s philosophy for the challenges of the 21st century – to the ‘Future of Philosophy’ as Dewey would have it.
