An Ecological Perspective of Power in Transformational Learning: A Case Study of Ethical Vegans.
McDonald, Barbara; Cervero, Ronald M.; Courtenay, Bradley C.
Adult Education Quarterly, v50 n1 p5-23 Nov 1999
In-depth interviews with 12 ethical vegans revealed the process of becoming vegetarian. Transformative learning proved to be a journey rather than a one-time decision. Mezirow's transformative theory does not adequately account for the power relations central to this process. Therefore, transformative learning should be viewed more holistically. (SK)
