Philosopher Vs. Philosopher

It’s time for philosopher versus philosopher. This month we have American John Dewey, firmly representing America’s faith in progress, versus Niccolò Machiavelli, representing political realism. Both men are smart. Both men are rational. They proceed from what the Japanese would call two different “ways.” It is precisely their unproven beginning points, what Van Til would call their presuppositions, that differ. This is more than two quotes. This is the crises of post-modernity and the enlightenment in one little picture, posted by a podcast host while drinking too much beer. Who do you think is right?
