"I'm Beginning to Think Like the Bird!" or, Social and Philosophical Issues in the Use of Mass Media in Adult Education-- A Review of the Literature.
Blakely, Robert J.
The author's purpose is to point to some issues, indicate some differing positions and call attention to some sources of ideas and information. After indicating broad notions of adult education and mass media, he defines the issues broadly, with the key issue being the chasm between man's power and his ability to use it for his own good, individually and collectively. He then focuses on technology, of which the media of mass communications are both causes and effects. To balance the allure of human-behavior technolatry, he notes the complexity of our human condition and the limits of human knowledge. (Author)
