ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument that the concept of the lost individual of educator John Dewey and his proposed solutions for reconstruction can help both schooling and society tackle issues of depoliticization and individualization. It considers Dewey's notion of formation of the self formed through interactions with one's physical and social environments. It then examines Dewey's process of growth attained through the acquisition and adjustment of habits by way of inquiry and reflection.
