I’m asking because I support progressive education and constructionism. I want them to succeed. I’m just not sure if they will if we remain ignorant of the history and don’t understand why these ideas failed to gain traction in the recent past.
I’m curious how you see your thinking relative to John Dewey’s and the progressive education…

Another person who could answer this question of why these ideas failed to gain traction is John Sowa who had a piece on CS Peirce titled 
Peirce’s Contributions to the 21st Century

It’s a story of the rejection of Peirce’s pragmatism and the acceptance of Frege’s (and Russell’s) analytic philosophy.
