“John Dewey’s philosophy of education has two related aspects—the moral and the psychological. His book on Interest and Effort in Education is a seminal study on the scientific theory of learning which brings to bear the principles of dynamic, functional psychology on the processes of learning and teaching. Its study is still re­warding, especially in avoiding some of the misconceptions about the nature and character of motivation that developed as Dewey’s views made headway.”—Sidney Hook
