From the cover: This ground-breaking study details the intellectual development of George Herbert Mead as a thinker of great originality and as a practitioner of social reform. Gary Cook traces the genesis of Meads social psychological and philosophical ideas by analyzing his journal articles and posthumously published writings.

Cook draws on unpublished correspondence and other documents to shed light on Meads early education, his academic career at the Universities of Michigan and Chicago, and his leadership in social and educational reform organizations in Chicago. Included are an overview of Meads contributions to the pragmatic tradition and a detailed account of his involvement, during the final years of his life, in a controversy between University of Chicago president Robert Maynard Hutchins and the schools Department of Philosophy.
