In the first half of the 20 th Century, Martin Heidegger refused to call his work "philosophy" as such and made reference, instead, to "questioning" and "thinking. Wittgenstein compared philosophy to the scaffolding needed to construct a building and suggested that scaffolding must be pulled down after construction is over.
Taking an historical point of view, it becomes clear that science also suffered a developmental pattern similar to philosophy. The difference lies in the fact that science proceeded through a revolutionary transformation from the 16 th through the 17 th Century.
We see this transformation in the scientific approaches of Brahe, Kepler, Galileo, and Newton; their philosophical counterparts are in Bacon, Descartes, and Locke. The re-orientation of science from Scholastic demonstration to observational experimentation produced the Modern world as we know it. Science continued, indeed accelerated, its growth as a powerful gatherer of new knowledge about the natural world. Philosophy developed new concepts to rationalize the progress of science.
Invention and industry, along with new political ideas and economic modes of organization, moved nations into spectacular new developments. Unfortunately, there was a very dark side to the shapes assumed by the Modern world.
By the time Dewey revised and enlarged his book, we had experienced two tremendously destructive world wars. If philosophers had kept up somewhat with the conceptual challenges of rationalizing science, they had not seen the need of a revolutionized philosophical methodology when it came to the future needs of understanding human and social problems.
