It is good to see Cunningham et al. including F. Matthias Alexander in their list of positive influences in John Dewey’s life. However, I believe Cunningham’s essay, ‘Shared explorations of body-mind: the reciprocal influences of Dewey and F.M. Alexander’, falls short in its acknowledgement of Alexander and in one important aspect is incorrect. In this response, I hope to set the record straight and briefly illustrate how the reciprocal influences of these two educators have continued to grow in the near-century since they first met.
