The same is true for habit. 64 An organism is not primary in the transaction between it and its environment, nor is the environment for that matter. An organism does not “own” either its physiological activities or habits. Of course, people often speak of habits, as well as physiological activities, as if they belong to a particular organism, and there are good reasons for doing so. 65 But, as Dewey cautions, [t]o convert this special reference [to habit as belonging to an organism] into a belief of exclusive ownership is as misleading as to suppose that breathing and digesting are complete within the human body.

Because of this passivity, stew is still a ®awed metaphor for the activity of transaction. While I will use the stew metaphor because of its strength in conveying a nonatomistic, nonreductive relationship of identity and difference, I do not want to suggest that transaction is a passive process whose movement is generated by a nontransactional source outside it. Dewey never used the metaphor of a stew. But his explanation of his distaste for the melting pot metaphor and his reservations about the alternative metaphor of an orchestra shed further light on the notion of transaction.

The difference between the inanimate and animate is not that the in- 25 Living Across and Through Skins animate is more properly considered to be physico-chemical nor that the animate includes something added to the physico-chemical from without. 32 While it exhibits bias, an inanimate body does not transact with its world in such a way as to preserve itself, as animate bodies do. For example, while iron is “biased” in that it will react with water but not air in becoming iron oxide, it does not attempt to modify its transaction with water so that it avoids turning into rust.
