More or less dogmatic theory” (367). This defect has kept them in the shadowlands of the “dogmatic disciplines,” where contending theories flail against one another in disregard of proper scientific method, which “does not set up one dogma in place of another” (289). The phrase “the so-called ‘social sciences’” speaks volumes about the attitude that Mead-2 holds toward theories of the past. It is important to emphasize, however, that this attitude is not the only attitude that Mead expresses.

Accordingly, it is easy to imagine that, had the two of them traded their 1891 course assignments, so that Mead was the one who ended up teaching “Movements of Thought,” Mead’s lectures at that point would not have been dissimilar from Dewey-1. Conversely, had Dewey returned to teaching this course around 1915, his lectures then would likely have borne little resemblance to Dewey-1 but may well have come closer to Mead-1. Given this, what I will be doing here is using Dewey-1 as a historical baseline from which to understand how the course changed in Mead’s hands in connection with various contextual changes that occurred (for Mead and Dewey both) in the years after Dewey-1.
