Hartree, Anne
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v3 n3 p203-10 Apr-Jun 1984
The author suggests that Knowles's concept of andragogy offers a philosophical position rather than a unified theory of adult learning. She examines weaknesses of the theory and discusses it in relation to humanistic psychology and existentialism. (SK)
