Defining Adult Education, 1929-1992: A Burble through the Tulgey Wood.
Newsom, Ron; Anderson, Margaret
Journal of Adult Education, v23 n2 p15-27 Fall 1995
Definitions of adult education were analyzed in "Adult Education Quarterly" and its predecessors, 1929-1992, and in a professional association's handbook series, 1934-1990. Definitions clustered into three categories representing the field's development: (1) 1929-1945, no single definition, more inclusiveness; (2) 1946-1979, definition sought as organizations and graduate programs emerged; and (3) 1980-1992, emphasis on clarifying philosophical foundations.
