And finally, it is if anything still less possible really to get away from or "behind" experience in general.

The Cynics' contempt for worldly goods and cultural pursuits; the mystics' ecstatic experience as a means of salvation; the scourging of the flesh and the devaluation of this life in view of the belief in a better life to come, in the Christian tradition; and the restriction of philosophy to a purely descriptive program, or to purely logical processesthese are some of the ways of practicing renunciation of social issues.

When Dewey speaks of experience, in the complete sense in which he means it to be understood, as the method of philosophy, he is doing little more than providing emphasis in a desired direction. Negatively, it aids in combating one-sided and artificial methods.
