THE RELATION OF THE LINKAGE THEORY TO MATURITY AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR ADULT EDUCATION.
WHITING, GEOFFREY A.
TO UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF MATURITY AN ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR ADULT EDUCATION, THE LITERATURE ON THE LINKAGE THEORY WAS EXAMINED AND BASIC IDEAS ABOUT LINKAGES WERE FORMULATED. THE SIX LINKAGES SUGGESTED BY H.A. OVERSTREET IN "THE MATURE MIND" (KNOWLEDGE, RESPONSIBILITY, COMMUNICATION, MATURE SEXUALITY, EMPATHY, AND PHILOSOPHY) SEEM TO BE MAJOR ATTRIBUTES OF MATURITY. HOWEVER, ANOTHER MAJOR ASPECT OF LIFE NOT COVERED BY ANY OF THE LINKAGES CONSIDERED SUGGESTS THAT A SEVENTH LINKAGE--THE EMOTIONAL--SHOULD BE INCLUDED. MAN MUST DEVELOP STABLE EMOTIONAL PATTERNS OF BEHAVIOR. THE IMPLICATIONS OF THIS STUDY FOR ADULT EDUCATION ARE THAT--ADULTS SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO CONTINUE LEARNING, LEARNING IS AN ART TO BE ACQUIRED, EVERY LEARNER MUST ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY, ACTIVE INDIVIDUAL PARTICIPATION IS ESSENTIAL, GROUP DISCUSSION, KNOWLEDGE, PHYSICAL ARRANGEMENTS, AND PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE ARE IMPORTANT, PERSONS NEED TO BECOME ACTIVE MEMBERS OF A LEARNING TEAM, AND PROCESS IS SIGNIFICANT.
