Candy, Philip C.
Interchange on Educational Policy, v13 n4 p56-69 1982

Personal construct psychology is depicted as a particularly innovative approach to adult learning with implications for: (1) the philosophy of lifelong learning; (2) the importance of experience; (3) recognition of individual differences; and (4) the principle of self-direction.
