If you're interested in Dewey (both the man and his ideas), I can't recommend reading Louis Menand's The Metaphysical Club: A Story of Ideas in America (https://www.amazon.com/Metaphysical-Club-Story-Ideas-America...) highly enough. It's truly magisterial, and will give you insight not just on Dewey but on the entire sweep of his intellectual age as well.
