Why Social Movements Matter: Adult Education Theory, Cognitive Praxis, and the Creation of Knowledge.
Holford, John
Adult Education Quarterly, v45 n2 p95-111 Win 1995
A new view of social movements theorizes that they generate new knowledge through cognitive praxis. Because adult education is itself a social movement, this perspective can assist in analyzing its evaluation as well as pointing out a way to reestablish adult education's emphasis on social change.
