Self-Help Learning: A Dual Concept.
Strong, Marie
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v11 n1 p51-69 Jan-Mar 1992
Comparison of nineteenth- and twentieth-century promotion of self-help learning shows that the aim and outcome can be socialization and order rather than social advancement and autonomy. Successful self-help schemes are rarely based on self-help alone, which calls into question the morality and financial wisdom of promoting a concept without understanding the concept and the adult learner.
