Pragmatism and Creativity: Patenting the School Art Manifesto from Dewey’s Aesthetic Experience

À propos de cet article


An original way to make sense of the aesthetic experience concept – in a Deweyan perspective – is from the Art-Education binomial. After studying the pragmatist philosophical category of Experience in John Dewey, a product of Doctoral theoretical research in education, it was possible to characterize a new art movement: School Art. Hence, this conceptual-theoretical finding will expand a wide range of art movements that emerged between the nineteenth century and contemporaneity: Art Nouveau, Impressionism, Abstract Art, Futurism, Action Painting, and Children’s Art, among many others. However, because of lexical reasons and hoping to achieve greater acceptance among theorists, the so-called School Art will patent from this paper as a neologism named from now on as Artscholarism. Thus, its philosophical-historical foundations, characteristics, and description will be the article’s primary purpose. In that sense, psychological and historical discussions will emerge throughout the paper. In conclusion, the new art movement – Artscholarism – comes from Deweyan thinking and is framed by creativity and a social context.
