On the Normative Aspects of Adult Education Taxonomies.
Bagnall, Richard G.
Adult Education Quarterly, v40 n4 p229-36 Sum 1990
Taxonomies are unavoidably infused with recommendations of what ought or ought not to be. Thus, use of descriptive taxonomies may have a normatively conservative effect independent of user intentions. The importance of taxonomies to adult education necessitates a critical understanding of their normative features. (SK)
