Title: Jane Addams: Progressive Pioneer of Peace, Philosophy, Sociology, Social Work and Public Administration
Authors: Patricia M., Shields
Keywords: Progressive Pioneer of Peace, Philosophy, Sociology, Social Work and Public Administration
Issue Date: 2017
Publisher: Springer
Description: There have been many fine biographies1 and books, which examine the ideas2 of Jane Addams. This book makes the case that Jane Addams is a pioneer—a pioneer of peace, philosophy, feminist studies, social science and professional fields. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary pioneers traverse the land. A pioneer is “one of the first people to move to or live in a new area.” Pioneers inhabit new physical space and “settle” a new area. Pioneers also inhabit the world of abstraction. They help “to create or develop new ideas or methods” and “prepare for others to follow” (Merriam-Webster n.d.). Hence, pioneers are explicitly and implicitly part of a community. A covered wagon train filled with families traveling west is a typical image of a pioneer, not the lone trapper wandering in the wilderness.
