Education, Experience and Existence proposes a new way of understanding education that delves beneath the conflict, confusion and compromise that characterize its long history. At the heart of this new understanding is what John Dewey strove to expound: a coherent theory of experience. Dewey’s reputation as a pragmatist is well known, but where experience is concerned pragmatism is only half the story. The other half is phenomenological, as crafted by Martin Heidegger. Encompassing both is Charles Sanders Peirce, whose philosophy draws pragmatism and phenomenology together in an embrace which enables a truly experiential philosophy to emerge. The book approaches the problem of confusion in education and philosophy by beginning with our most basic understandings of existence. Existence as an interaction is the starting point of modern science, and existence as individuality offers an aesthetic origin, attending to existence as a simple unity. In our contemporary world where scientific ways of thinking are privileged, the aesthetic whole is often overlooked, especially in education. Yet both are connected. A coherent theory of experience is therefore a marriage between phenomenology and pragmatism, enabling each to maintain its position by acknowledging how both are required. The book is divided into three main parts: - confusion in philosophy and education - a coherent theory of experience - a coherent theory of education. Quay suggests that education benefits from such a coherent theory of experience by better comprehending its connection to life. More than just knowing, more than just doing, education is about being. This book will be of interest to philosophers, educators and educational philosophers.

Understanding life in school would seem to be something everyone should have a good grasp of, considering that most of us have been to school. However, this can lead us to accept school for what it is and not question the deeper elements of its organization. This book takes a deeper look at the question of life in school, going to the source of the matter itself – the young people who live school on a day to day basis. Contrasting experiences of school and school camp enables insight into each environment which is not possible without the juxtaposition created by the two forms of education. Key to analysis of these experiences is an understanding of life, influenced by Heidegger and Dewey, that highlights the importance of not only what we know but also who we are.

In 1955, the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education and the Philosophy of Education Society collaborated on a study examining the qualities of experience important to teacher education. Their report, entitled 'Qualities of Experience for Prospective Teachers' was published in 1957. A symposium on the report was held in 1958, hosted by the Philosophy of Education Society, and this book includes the paper read at it. The introduction includes a brief synopsis of the report itself, for readers unfamiliar with it, and the summary at the end deals with general criticisms, questions, and suggestions regarding it. This book may clarify the meaning of certain terms and the nature of issues for those who use the report in practical situations. As a cooperative discussion by representatives of varying schools of thought, it has a place in course in the philosophy or principles of education, especially if they include consideration of qualities of experience as educational ends, aims, or values.
