"The Economic Basis of the New Society"

by Dewey, John (1988)

Key Passage

"The problem of the adjustment of individual capacities and their development to actual occupations is not a one-sided or unilateral one. It is bilateral and reciprocal. It is a matter of the state of existing occupations, of the whole set-up of productive work;—of the structure of the industrial system" (p.319)
