Heralded as the crowning work of a great career, Logic: The Theory of Inquiry was widely reviewed. To Evander Bradley McGilvary, the work assured Dewey a place among the worlds great logicians.
William Gruen thought No treatise on logic ever written has had as direct and vital an impact on social life as Deweys will have.
Paul Weiss called it the source and inspiration of a new and powerful movement.
Irwin Edman said of it, Most philosophers write postscripts; Dewey has made a program. His Logic is a new charter for liberal intelligence.
Ernest Nagel called the Logic an impressive work. Its unique virtue is to bring fresh illumination to its subject by stressing the roles logical principles and concepts have in achieving the objectives of scientific inquiry.
