Prof. Matt Flamm, assistant professor of philosophy at Rockford College, was one of a group of scholars invited to the fifth annual "American and European Values" conference at Opole University in Opole, Poland.
Flamm’s installment of the conference series was titled "John Dewey at 150: Art, Culture, Society." Conference co-organizer Chris Skowronski, Flamm, and renowned Dewey scholar Larry Hickman are currently editing a selection of essays from the conference to be published by Rodopi Press (2010).
Title of Flamm’s presentation and contribution to the pending volume is "Pragmatic Moralism and the Politicization of Philosophy." It is an examination of George Santayana's criticism of the philosophy of John Dewey.
Flamm and Professor Skowronski have also co-edited two previous volumes of essays together, one on George Santayana and the other on *American and European Values*, each published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. (Amazon)
