Randy Hewitt is Associate Professor in the School of Teacher Education at the University of Central Florida. Hewitt’s current research focuses on the critical sense of the American pragmatist, social reconstructionist traditions, and on the art of democratic pedagogy. He is the author of Dewey and Power: Renewing the Democratic Faith, co-editor with his old friend Joe Kincheloe of Regenerating the Philosophy of Education: What Happened to Soul?, and more recently, co-editor with Becky L. Noël Smith of Love in Education and The Art of Living. He is a member of the John Dewey Society, the Southeast Philosophy of Education Society, the American Educational Studies Society, and the Society of Philosophy and History of Education. And despite all of the above, he still is as working class as the day he was born.
