Reflexive Modernity, Self-Reflective Biographies: Adult Education in the Light of the Risk Society.
Jansen, Theo; van der Veen, Ruud
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v11 n4 p275-86 Oct-Dec 1992
The risk society characterized by reflexive modernization features individualization; rather than being controlled by social conditioning, individuals make their own life decisions. The ambiguous nature of this process is a challenge to adult education and applications of traditional life course theories. (SK)
