14 OVERHEARD IN SEVILLE
Dewey's trumpet call for religious fervor in Intelligent social action had its loudest
flourish in the concluding words of his book, words Santayana might well have read
with either annoyance or bemusement:
Here are all the elements for a religious faith that shall not be confined to sect, class, or race.
Such a faith has always been implicitly the common faith of mankind. It remains only to
make it explicit and militant. (ACF 87)
