The Problem of Defining Adult Education as an Area of Research.
Lawson, K. H.
Adult Education Quarterly, v36 n1 p39-43 Fall 1985
It is the author's contention that there is unavoidable ambiguity in educational concepts, that they cannot be objectively identified, and that the definition of an area of research entails a number of value judgments. The author examines the ways in which educational concepts are actually used and compares ordinary usage with professional usage. (CT)
