Ideas, Principles, and Lateral Progress in Jane Addams’s Evolutionary Theorizing
My comments focus on Jane Addams’s method of ethical deliberation, as understood through Dr. Fischer’s detailed explication, especially as offered in chapter 2, “An Evolutionary Method of Ethical Deliberation.” As Fischer points out, this explication is of one iteration of Jane Addams’s method, a particularized response to how Jane Addams believed the settlement residents should respond to the many labor strikes in Chicago during the 1890s. I offer my comments from the perspective of both a scholar, seeking to better apply Addams’s insights to my own work, and an educator, seeking to better integrate Addams’s work into my teaching. My hope is to flesh out more clearly my own understanding and, in so doing, clarify, correct, and improve my scholarship and teaching and, perhaps by proxy, assist others in doing the same.
