Abstract This article explores interreligious education from the perspective of John Dewey's educational philosophy. Keenly aware that twentiethcentury individuals and societies would have an expanding plurality of experiences, Dewey proposed a democratic educational philosophy able to account for life in a pluralistic world. Three interconnected themes from Dewey's educational philosophy are applied to interreligious education. The themes are the method, subject matter, and participants of interreligious education. Using Dewey's insights calls into question three aspects of the inter-faith movement: dialogue, doctrine, and sacerdotalism. Copyright
