Some Problems in the Conceptualization of Adult Education for the Purposes of Research and Practice.
Lawson, K. H.
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v8 n4 p301-13 Oct-Dec 1989
Examining the existence of an identifiable domain of adult education, this article considers the increasing diversity of practice, the methodological and philosophical problems involved, changing concepts and aims of adult education, and the current climate of relativism. Proposes the concept of tradition, which helps define paradigms that change through time, but provide reference points for assessing theory and practice. (Author/SK)
