A Comparative Approach to Educational Forms and Learning Processes.
Lave, Jean
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v8 n2 p181-87 Sum 1982
Study of processes by which Liberian apprentice tailors learn their craft is the basis for questioning the traditional dichotomy of "formal" and "informal" education. Used as an analogy to demonstrate that anthropologists need not leave the study of learning to the psychologists, but can make valuable contributions by pursuing their own approach emphasizing the socially organized nature of learning.
