He wrote in the first chapter of this book, "The quest for certainty is a quest for a peace which is assured, an object which is unqualified by risk and the shadow of fear which action casts Quest for complete certainty can be fulfilled in pure knowing alone/5(4).

Scepticism that is not such a search is as much a personal emotional indulgence as is dogmatism. Attainment of the relatively secure and settled takes place, however, only with respect to specified problematic situations ; quest for certainty that is universal, applying to everything, is a compensatory perversion.

In Human Nature and Conduct, Dewey extends the principles of the his pragmatic philosophy into the realm of developmental and social psychology. The work was a notable departure from the deterministic theories of contemporaries, such as the physiological psychology of Wilhelm Wundt, the behaviorism of Ivan Pavlov.
