The article cites “Hans Jonas” as one of the scholars who sparked new interest in John Dewey since the 1970’s. That’s a typo–Hans J-o-a-s is working on Dewey in Berlin. Hans J-O-N-A-S was a philosopher-historian whose project may have distant affinities with Dewey’s, but only very, very distant. And Jonas took no interest whatsoever in Dewey or any other of the Pragmatists.

Dear Julian Petri, Thank you for the correction. I changed the name to Hans Joas.
